Open Educational Practices
Open education, in the forms of open resources, courses, and learning and teaching practices, has become a hot topic. While forms of open learning pre-date the digital, technology-enabled approaches to openness are now de rigeur. Digital content, and communication and collaboration technologies have made possible open educational resources (OER), open courseware (OCW), MOOCs, and open access (OA) to research and data. Within this topic I aim to reflect the wide-ranging nature of this evolving area of work, where the common thread is 'openness', but where things may be open or opened in different ways. For an introduction to this field see eprints.bbk.ac.uk/17820 and for further reading a good place to start is wikieducator.org/GoOPEN

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Open Research and Education | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
It was such an honor to be invited to speak on a panel at OpenCon with Denisse Albornoz, Thomas Mboa, and Siko Bouterse. Lorraine Chuen did an amazing job putting the panel together and moderating.

Lorraine’s questions were:

How do the solutions put forth by the Open movements reinforce Western dominance, colonialism, as well as barriers on the basis of race, class, gender, ability, etc…?

Openness and education: a beginner’s guide

Openness and education: a beginner’s guide | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
This post was written by Martin Weller.

One of the things we’ve noticed as a research team attending different conferences that deal with aspects of ‘Open Education’ is that people come into it from a wide range of backgrounds. It is also quite a broad term, with many different interpretations and perspectives. This can make it quite difficult for a new researcher to know where to start, or to come to common understanding when people have different starting points.

Google Puts Online 10,000 Works of Street Art from Across the Globe

Google Puts Online 10,000 Works of Street Art from Across the Globe | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
Circling Birdies by Cheko, Granada Spain

Since last we wrote, Google Street Art has doubled its online archive by adding some 5,000 images, bringing the tally to 10,000, with coordinates pinpointing exact locations on all five continents (though as of this writing, things are a bit thin on the ground in Africa). Given the temporal realities of outdoor, guerrilla art, pilgrims may arrive to find a blank canvas where graffiti once flourished. (RIP New York City’s 5 Pointz, the “Institute of Higher Burning.”)

What is Open Pedagogy

What is Open Pedagogy | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
Chances are, you are familiar with the concept of "open content," but "open pedagogy" has not yet made its way into mainstream conversations about teaching and learning. Open content, of course, refers to digital resources that have been shared online with a license that both permits and encourages re-use and sharing within the limits of the license's specifications. Many open resources are shared today with a Creative-Commons license.

A decade ago, Amy Carleton, a lecturer in comparative media studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, had a sign in her classroom in capital letters that read: “Wikipedia is not a source”.

Fast forward to 2018 and not only has Dr Carleton taken down the sign but she is now using the online encyclopedia to help teach her courses.
