Using Open Pedagogy to Support Inclusive, Student-Centered Open Educational Practice: Lessons From the Field

Student agency, as embodied in values and practices such as learner-driven control of student work, critical understanding of and engagement with technology and privacy, and inclusive learning, is at the heart of open education and open educational practice (OEP). Unfortunately, many instructors feel unprepared to communicate these values and scaffold these skills in a way that their students can fully understand and engage with. As Open Education Fellows, we have been conducting research in order to help faculty and librarians partner to meet these needs and support broader discussion about student agency and equitable instruction.

This session presents the results of interviews with open pedagogy practitioners and their students. It also incorporates a content analysis of intellectual property policies at more than 100 institutions as a way of understanding how institutional policy does or does not support student agency in open licensing. Taken together, these findings offer an exciting set of approaches to open pedagogy that can be used by experienced practitioners to polish and update their course design and by new practitioners who need a blueprint to integrate agency and inclusivity from the beginning. Join us to get a better understanding of what we are doing well, what we can do better, and how the community can come together to build a blueprint for student agency that centers the values of open and offers concrete guidance for putting those values into practice.
