Critical Open Pedagogy

Drawing on work in both open education and critical pedagogy, we will question what it means to be an open educator, speak honestly about precarity among students and faculty, explore the value and limitations of open licensing, consider transformational and harmful effects of student public scholarship, interrogate the openness of educational technologies, and struggle with the many ways in which open education marginalizes despite its mission of equity. Throughout it all we will remain grounded in a focus on social justice.

We will work together as a large group, in small groups, and as individuals to annotate readings, design (and redesign) course structures and assignments, experiment and provide peer feedback, interact with some virtual friends, and share our learning as it unfolds. You may feel exposed, even terrified, but also strengthened and liberated.
