Open Pedagogy Conference

By | December 23, 2016

On December 9, 2016, Linn-Benton Community College hosted an Open Pedagogy conference onsite and – due to unusual wintry weather – online. This recording begins with a definition of open pedagogy. Suzanne Wakim’s keynote begins at ~18:00. A discussion of learning outcomes and open educational strategies for assessment begins at ~1:43:00.

Open educational practices are pedagogical strategies that use the affordances of open licenses to get students involved in creative activities with real-world audiences. David Wiley is credited with coining the term open pedagogy and contrasts this type of assignment with “disposable assignments” that have no value once a grade is assigned.

Keynote speaker Suzanne Wakim, OER Coordinator, Honors Chair, and Biology Faculty, Butte Community College, has taught biology since 2000. Her website, Butte Biology, documents how she designed her course around guiding biology students to create an open textbook. She will share open pedagogy ideas both big and small in her presentation.

Conference documents, including resources for students, are available in the Open Pedagogy folder.

Many thanks to the Linn-Benton Community College Media Services team for their work recording, producing, and captioning this video.
