Open Educational Ideas – a New Approach for Open Education

Open Educational Ideas – a New Approach for Open Education | Open Educational Resources | Scoop.it

"Open Educational Ideas (OEI) are a new concept addressing motivational barriers to OER (re-)use. OEI aims at creating  early stage collaborations for Open Education. Bringing people together to develop Open Educational Resources (OER) is the simple idea of the concept – creating “emotional ownership” is the main approach to engage and encourage educators."

Jody R. Rosen & Maura A. Smale: Open Digital Pedagogy = Critical Pedagogy

"There seems too often to be an explicit agreement that instructors lead and students respond, that instructors advise as students seek guidance, that when instructors talk about their pedagogy, it should be outside of earshot of the students they instruct. Open digital platforms can break these implicit rules to make spaces for joint inquiry among all members of the college community in the spirit of Freirian ideals of critical pedagogy. Using open digital tools creates space for productive dialogue within and across courses and departments, allowing for critical co-investigation not just within a single course but in the college community. An open learning space in which everyone can work together enables browsing and viewing each other’s work, and empowers students to participate more fully in their education."

If these are rules then they need to be broken!
