Creating a CRT-enabled Open Pedagogy in Online Courses: An Example of a Renewable Assignment

This video will present the audience with an example of a renewable assignment that links open pedagogy with culturally responsive teaching (CRT). Open pedagogy empowers students to become active participants in the construction of course context (Wiley & Hilton, 2018) while CRT connects and directs them to leverage their culture, language, ethnicity, experiences, emotions or other individual connectors. CRT has been shown to improve students’ learning and help discover their interests and talents (Bassey, 2016), increase participation and communication (Chen & Yang, 2017), and result in higher rates of positive student behavior (Larson, et al., 2018). Providing the connection and relevance of the material through CRT approach as well as the freedom of creating such material through open pedagogy approach may provide synergistic effects. The video will provide an example of a renewable assignment that combines open pedagogy and CRT aiming at unlocking student potential and improve learning and future success.
