The theme for the 2021 OpenEd Conference is “Making Open for All”. So often our focus is on “Making Open for our students”. This session will focus on a unique aspect of Learning, and “Making Open for All”, where a instructor who has attended numerous OER Learning Circles is going to share how he has taken the model that he found so successful as a participant in OER Faculty Development Learning Circles, and transferred that learning and knowledge to application of that model in his course redesigns. He has taken the core elements of the Learning Circle Model, and now uses them in his courses, with his learners. He will highlight the methodologies and best practices from that model and share how they are helping him enjoy the same successes he experienced in Learning Circles with his students in the courses he teaches.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Attendees will leave this session with an awareness of how “student learning” as an instructor focus is also so applicable to the personal professional development of those in the role of instructor
  • Attendees will leave this session with an awareness of how broad the idea of “Open” really is and the cyclical and reciprocal aspect the of the “Pay it Forward” concept of OER
  • Attendees will leave this session with an awareness of how adaptable The OER Learning Circle Model is for professional development as well as for course redesign and the opportunity to embrace open pedagogy to include student voices that speak to multiple dimensions of cultural identities; thereby creating opportunities for differences to shine as positive and relevant components of humanity
