Making Sense of Open Education
Open Education is an amazing and chaotic concept that challenges traditional notions of who creates knowledge, and who controls its dissemination in traditional, closed, and system-constrained methods of education. This session invites all stakeholders in Cambrian’s teaching and learning community to consider how Open Education extends beyond cost savings for students, to learner empowerment and engagement. Come learn about the Open Education movement from eCampus Ontario representatives, along with two Cambrian Faculty members who were accepted as eCampus Ontario Open Education Fellows.
Participants will be able to describe open education, discuss the evolution of Open Educational Practices in Ontario, and compare the goals of open education with their personal philosophies of teaching and learning
Facilitators: Representatives from eCampus Ontario, along with Cambrian faculty members Laura Killam and Jessica O’Reilly
Special Note: This session is open to all staff and will take place in the eDome!
