Open and Able: Using Open Pedagogy to Adopt OER

Feedback form is now closed.

As many OER, OEP, and open pedagogy scholars have noted, OER at first took precedence over open pedagogy. With the increase in instructors’ adopting OER has come a more interactive relationship in OER and open pedagogy. While early adopters of OER embraced its support of and usefulness to students, these instructors may not have immediately considered the learning and teaching opportunities for both students and instructors that OER offered through open pedagogy. This panel will consider what open access means to instructors and what are its incentives to instructors as well as to their students. In order to facilitate the adoption of OER, it will also consider resources and methods for practicing open pedagogy in instructors' current and future courses.

After reviewing best practices in open pedagogy, the panel will examine how some of these practices can be used to customize available OER to heighten the salience of instructors’ course goals and learning objectives. The panel will model such customization with ancillary material developed in conjunction with editing British Literature II: Romantic Era to the Twentieth Century and Beyond, an open anthology published by the University of North Georgia Press in partnership with eCore and Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG). This discussion will be augmented with the learning activities, templates, formatting, and conversion practices of the ALG grant-supported ancillary material currently being developed for World History: Cultures, States, and Societies to 1500, an open textbook also published by the University of North Georgia Press in partnership with eCore and ALG. These models, methods, and templates intend to provide resources for other OER-based ancillaries for additional OER adoptions.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Locate, access, and evaluate discipline-specific OER
  • Identify needs in the effectiveness of discipline-specific OER for instructors' course outcomes and learning goals
  • Learn open pedagogical methods and resources
  • Learn best practices for open pedagogy
  • Learn to use open pedagogy so discipline-specific OER will meet instructors' course outcomes and learning goals
