What is open pedagogy?
What is open pedagogy?
Open pedagogy is a practice which uses the 5R activity framework to design lessons and assessments that encourage students to improve or create course content. With open pedagogy projects, students are empowered to engage in information creation through non-disposable or renewable assignments. The student is both creator and contributor of assignments that are openly licensed, allowing the content to be shared, revised, and reused by future students in a course.
Simply put, open pedagogy involves creating assignments that involve students creating things that others can revise and reuse, that add value to the world beyond the course.
