Free vs. Open

  • Keynote by Dr. Karen Cangialosi
  • “Traditional OER” vs. moving beyond a focus on cost
  • To paraphrase, her description of Open Pedagogy includes:
    • Community and collaboration: sharing resources, ideas, and power
    • Connection to a wider public: learners contribute to, not just consume knowledge
    • Student focused and knowledge-driven
    • Critical approach to knowledge (Who creates it? What biases are present?)
  • Contrasting definition: OER-enabled Pedagogy (David Wiley)
  • Complicating question: If this work is de-colonializing and anti-racist, who is actually doing it? Whose voices are really in control of this process?
