Open Pedagogy

Open Pedagogy is an access-oriented commitment to learner-driven education and as a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part.

Open pedagogy can include creating, adapting, or updating OER with students, building course policies, outcomes, assignments, rubrics, and schedules of work collaboratively with students, or facilitating student-created and student-controlled learning environments.

To browse through diverse examples of open pedagogy in practice (and to contribute your own ideas and practices), visit the Open Pedagogy Notebook.
