Week 1: Reflections on the readings

by

As an academic librarian, I am often driven to see issues like OER in a very localized context, so I appreciated reading about “openness” in education from a less restricted perspective. The Almeida article and Pomerantz video really hit on some of things I worry about in regards to OER and its future success.  “OER […]

Constant Consideration

by

Photo from pixabay.com This week in OpenLearning18, I was reminded of how important it is to clearly indicate the meaning of “open.” I was also reminded that if open education and OERs are truly going to be transformative, then we must also continue to ask ourselves some important questions—what does it take to make courses […]

Kal-toh, chess, and tic-tac-toe

by

Chess
This week we peeked into the world of open and flew into a worm hole.  There is sooo much that can be read into one word, and so many uses of the concept that it gets difficult for me to see the multidimensionality of it.  I have a tendency to stay on the surface because […]

I was talking the other day to a fairly senior administrator in academic affairs about OpenLearning18.  This administrator has been very supportive of our institution’s open initiative, and so I was just bringing him/her up to date on things open. … Continue reading →

A Conceptual Framework?

by

Vancouver Trips Festival 1966
I participated in OpenLearning17 and am back for OpenLearning18.  Why you ask?  Because I learned enough last year to articulate better questions this year.  Last year, I went in somewhat blind.  (There might be something we can learn as teachers … Continue reading →

Looking Forward

by

Atlanta Zoo: Lizard in log
This week for Open Learning ’18,  I’m to expound on these two questions… What do you hope to get from Open Learning ’18? What do you hope to contribute to Open Learning ’18? Well shoot, if I knew that I probably wouldn’t be here.  Okay… breathe…  Just be honest… What do I want to “get” […]

What I’m Looking Forward To in Open Learning ’18

by

Hi everyone, By participating in Open Learning 2018, I guess I have two major goals.  One:  To learn more about the overall trends, forces, and possibilities surrounding the OER movement,  Two: To learn creative strategies for promoting the active use of OER at my particular institution. I’m lucky enough to work with Steve Greenlaw (who is teaching […]

  What am I looking forward to for OpenLearning18? Connections and conversations! These OpenLearning experiences are designed for network expansion, so participants can connect with each other and see their networks expand (Twitter followers, synched blogs and such). The connections provide opportunities to engage in critical conversations about open education: open in what way, open […]

Pacing myself

by

Ok… I did my very first tweeting today. In the morning I played along with #DigitalGaurdiansEg Twitter Scavenger Hunt and that wasn’t so bad.  People posted pictures and other people guessed what the pictures were.  I didn’t get to the party until late, so for me the asynchronousity of it was an easy way for me […]
