The Power of Student Voice in the Open Education Movement

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Students are the end consumers for Open Educational Resources (OER). In order to have a discussion about diversity, pedagogy, quality of materials, and many other common conference topics, advocates must first understand what students needs are. In this panel led by former Student Body President Winni Zhang, former Student Union President Hailey Babb, the panelists will share their stories of policies that worked on their respective campuses as well as policies that can be modeled at other institutions. The presentation will discuss what a student-centric approach truly looks like, and how the OER community can continue to empower student voice in all parts of the open education movement. Understanding that each campus/organization is different, the panel will provide the audience with ample Q&A time to address the concerns the audience may have regarding their specific campuses or in general.

Learning Outcomes:
Attendees will walk away with:
1. An understanding of the importance of students in the fight for OERs.
2. A plan to mobilize and empower student voices on their respective campuses.
3. Case studies of how student advocacy at two seperate institutions advanced open education on the respective campuses.
4. An opportunity to ask former student leaders specific challenges to mobilizing students on their own campuses.
5. A new framework for viewing open education that is student-centric.
