Four Questions for Verena Roberts 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.

    Last week my second of four columns as Multiliteracies Department Editor for JAAL was published. The column, titled Teaching, Learning, and Sharing Openly Online discusses the challenges and opportunities as educators and students teach and learn openly online.
    Open learning is becoming a critical focus for K-12 technology-supported programs, both those strictly online as well as blended classroom practices extending into online environments. Open learning, also known as open education, can be defined as a set of practices, resources, and scholarship that are openly accessible, free to use and access, and to re-purpose.
    We uploaded a pre-publication draft of the column to allow for review, remix, and commentary. Please click here for the Google Doc, or review below.

    As a multimodal supplement to the column I assembled a group of experts and asked them four questions each about the column. You can review the videos below, and click through to learn more about each of the interviews.
