Open Educational Practices
Open learning has been a hot topic in education for some time, and most recently, in educational technology circles. Digital content, communication and collaboration technologies have made possible open educational resources (OER), open courseware (OCW), MOOCs, and open access (OA) to research and data. This topic is a collection of resources for those  who are doing something 'open' or who simply want to keep an eye on developments in the ongoing opening of educational practices.

A Meta-Analysis of Open Educational Communities of Practice and Sustainability in Higher Educational Policy

Le concept de "durabilité" a gagné du terrain à l'échelle internationale dans le domaine de l'éducation et est devenu un facteur important de motivation pour les pratiques pédagogiques ouvertes, bien que les définitions que les enseignants attribuent à ce terme diffèrent de sa définition institutionnelle. L'emploi du terme "durable" ou "durabilité" dans l'enseignement supérieur est très vaste, allant du concept de la prise en compte des besoins futurs des étudiants aux notions de rentabilité, d'accessibilité et d'impact environnemental, qui sont des notions économiques et écologiques prévalant dans la sphère commerciale. L'avenir est plein de défis que nous ne connaissons pas encore, mais ce dont nous pouvons être sûrs c'est qu'un nombre croissant de personnes devra pouvoir accéder à la formation continue. Apprendre et enseigner sont des activités humaines pratiquées au sein de nos communautés, souvent mais pas exclusivement dans des établissements scolaires tels que les écoles, collèges et lycées. Dans l'enseignement supérieur, publications et conférences universitaires ne sont plus les seuls moyens disponibles pour partager des connaissances. Le développement technologique a facilité l'interaction sociale grâce à ses outils de réseaux sociaux qui transforment notre façon de vivre et de travailler, en nous donnant accès à de nouveaux réseaux d'apprentissage. Dans cet article, nous explorons les idées qui sous-tendent l'utilisation des termes "durabilité" et "pédagogie ouverte" dans les politiques universitaires par le biais de la méta-analyse disponible dans les publications de politiques universitaires. Nous proposons que les notions de "durabilité" sont à la fois les facilitateurs les plus importants mais également des obstacles majeurs aux pédagogies ouvertes. Nous analysons dans quelle mesure les politiques universitaires australiennes (et internationales) abordent cette question.

Delivering Open Educational Resources for Engineering Design | Ariadne

A great deal of information is accessible on the World Wide Web which might be useful to both students and teachers. This material, however, is of variable quality and usefulness and is aimed at a wide spectrum of users. Moreover, such material rarely appears accompanied by guidance on how it may be most effectively used by potential users. To make information more usable it must be made more readily discoverable and there should be clear – and preferably machine-readable – indications of its provenance and quality and the legitimate uses to which it may be put.

OpenAttribute

OpenAttribute | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
give credit where credit is due.
The problem: Creative Commons licensed content is awesome, but attributing it properly can be difficult and confusing. The first rule for re-using openly licensed content is that you have to properly attribute the creator. There are specific requirements for what needs to go into that attribution, but those requirements can be confusing and hard to find.
The solution: A simple tool everyone can use to do the right thing with the click of a button. That’s why we’re building Open Attribute, a suite of tools that makes it ridiculously simple for anyone to copy and paste the correct attribution for any CC licensed work. These tools will query the metadata around a CC-licensed object and produce a properly formatted attribution that users can copy and paste wherever they need to.

Social networking affordances for open educational language practice

Social networking affordances for open educational language practice | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
Les ressources éducatives libres (REL), au sens de contenus ouverts (ré)utilisables gratuitement, retiennent de plus en plus l'intérêt des chercheurs et des praticiens pour leur potentiel de réinvestissement dans de nouveaux contextes éducatifs, donnant lieu à des pratiques éducatives libres (en anglais : Open Educational Practices). Le rôle des réseaux sociaux dans le développement des REL, offrant des moyens pour les groupes d'utilisateurs de s'engager socialement dans un apprentissage faisant sens et de combiner les contextes formels et informels reste à ce jour une thématique trop peu explorée. Cet article examine de façon critique si et comment les réseaux sociaux permettent des pratiques ouvertes, en se focalisant en particulier sur le champ de l'apprentissage / enseignement des langues. Pour les besoins de l'étude, les avis d'experts en REL ont été recueillis entre juin et août 2014 par un questionnaire ouvert. Les 18 répondants étaient des chercheurs opérant au carrefour des REL et de l'apprentissage des langues assisté par ordinateur (Alao). Le discours des experts a été étudié par le biais d'une analyse de contenu en lien avec trois dimensions : la valeur de la dimension sociale des pratiques éducatives ouvertes, les affordances des réseaux sociaux dans ces pratiques et les pédagogies ouvertes. L'étude examine si une pratique éducative ouverte pour l'enseignement des langues peut tirer profit des tendances à la participation des utilisateurs à travers les réseaux sociaux (réputation, recommandation et systèmes de badges), ainsi que les implications potentielles pour un enseignement ouvert des langues. Elle contribue également à une meilleure compréhension de l'évolution des approches pédagogiques offertes par les principes d'ouverture. Cette contribution aborde les questions suivantes. Quelle valeur les experts attribuent-ils à la dimension sociale de l'utilisation des REL ? Quels sont les affordances des réseaux sociaux pour le développement de la pratique éducative ouverte ? Comment la conception pédagogique est-elle affectée par l'apprentissage / enseignement des langues ouvert et en réseau ? L'analyse de contenu est utilisée comme une approche analytique, interprétative pour comprendre les réalités subjectives ( Mostyn, 1985 ; Mayring, 2000). Cet article met en avant l'idée que la participation et l'engagement des utilisateurs peuvent s'accroître, dans le cadre de pratiques éducatives ouvertes, si l'on approche les ressources ouvertes comme un matériau en cours de construction et non pas comme un contenu totalement achevé, prêt à l'emploi, une approche adoptée par certaines communautés de pratiques construites sur des réseaux sociaux. Cela permettrait de situer les pratiques ouvertes dans un environnement plus durable d'un point de vue social. Concevoir des espaces ouverts (plates-formes, sites de dépôts de ressources) qui facilitent la réutilisation des contenus est un paramètre essentiel et complexe pour l'expansion des pratiques ouvertes. D'une part, ce qui permet la réutilisation doit être renforcé sur le plan technique, ainsi que par l'inclusion des principes du réseautage et de l'incitation par le jeu. D'autre part, les questions relatives à la visibilité des pratiques et des identités professionnelles des utilisateurs ne doivent pas être négligées, car elles peuvent empêcher les utilisateurs de participer pleinement au partage social, ce qui est fondamental dans toute l'entreprise des REL.
