Collaborative Practice: Critical Information Literacies in Open Pedagogy

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

At its core, open pedagogy (OP) is teaching practices that facilitate the collaborative and transparent construction of knowledge made openly available through online communities. OP de-centers the instructor from the information expert to a facilitation role that supports student negotiation of ideas and transforms their learning into open knowledge sources (e.g. blogs, wikis, videos, etc.). With the introduction of critical information literacy to librarianship, instruction continues to teach how information is created, accessed, and used but also works to make visible the impacts of the social, political, and economic systems that influence what is created, how it is created, and how it is made accessible.

Using the lens of critical information literacy within librarianship, this session will provide examples of the integration of critical information literacy practices within the OP classroom, the kinds of information addressed to support students in these environments, and the transformative nature of these two complementary blended instructional methods.

Learning Outcomes:
Understand what open pedagogy entails in theory and practice
Understand what critical information literacy entails in theory and in practice
