A First Time for Everything: Novice Open Educators Take Center Stage with Open Pedagogy Approaches
Open Pedagogy Approaches: Faculty, Library, and Student Collaborations was recently published as a collection of OER case studies highlighting the collaborative work surrounding open educational initiatives. As the book’s release was announced, the editors realized the number of first-time authors, peer-reviewers, and copyeditors as these contributors celebrated their scholarly success through social media. Taking a look back, the presenters aim to highlight the stories of a few “first-timers,” addressing their motivations for getting involved (both in open pedagogy and in the book), the process of the work, and the potential impact that the book holds at their campuses and for their career trajectories.

Open Pedagogy Approaches, in itself, was the focus of a local professional development initiative, as a way to learn about and share models of open pedagogical practices while at the same time skilling up to know how to support future open educational ideas. The editors knew that the small editorial team was learning as they went, but did not realize that the high quality of the contributors’ work also included newcomers to open pedagogy who were also looking to develop their skills.

Panelists will include a sampling of authors, peer reviewers, and copyeditors, along with members of the editorial board.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will:
- celebrate the exciting initiatives and professional development opportunities of emerging leaders in open education through their contributions in Open Pedagogy Approaches: Faculty, Library, and Student Collaborations
- identify the relationship between open publishing and broader venues to develop professional growth
- generate a working list of models, platforms, and tools to encourage open pedagogy practices

The Power of Student Voice in the Open Education Movement
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.
