Four Questions for David Reinking About Teaching, Learning, & Sharing Openly Online

Our column on teaching, learning, and sharing openly online was just published in JAAL. I co-wrote the column with Verena Roberts, Randy LaBonte, and Lee Graham. In this case we share the challenges and opportunities associated with open, open educational resources, and open learning.

As a supplement to the column, we invited in a series of experts to spend some time discussing the broader impact of the details presented. The end result is a series of short video segments of the experts responding to a set of four questions about our column. You can review the video below. At the bottom of this post I share the questions and supplemental materials from the discussion.

Four Questions for David Reinking

David Reinking is a researcher known for his work with formative and design experiments and how literacy is affected by technology. He is the Eugene T. Moore Professor of Teacher Education at Clemson University.

  1. How do you frame open, and what are the implications for literacy and education?
  2. I see one of the challenges to the use of online open texts being a privileging of printed, traditional texts over online resources. Do you see these challenges, and how do you see the intersection?
  3. For instructors, academics, and educators in higher ed, how do you view the role of open (open access, open ed resources) impacting these spaces?
  4. I routinely blog, and share my work online. There is a debate in academia as to the role of scholars and researchers openly blogging, and publishing their work online. What is your position on this issue?
