Open Educational Resources: Open Pedagogy

This guide is designed to assist faculty in the exploration, identification, evaluation, selection, and adoption of Open Educational Resources

Introduction to Open Pedagogy

Open pedagogy is a practice which uses the 5R activity framework to design lessons and assessments that encourage students to improve or create course content. With open pedagogy projects, students are empowered to engage in information creation through non-disposable or renewable assignments. The student is both creator and contributor of assignments that are openly licensed, allowing the content to be shared, revised, and reused by future students in a course.


Open Pedagogy - A Student's Perspective

Miranda Dean, a senior majoring in film studies at Keene State College, describes how her experiences in an open pedagogy course taught her about herself and changed how she understands and interacts with the world and with the information that is shared within it. Miranda was a student in Dr. Karen Cangialosi's Evolution and Human Behavior (BIO302) course in spring 2017. In addition to teaching an open pedagogy course, Dr. Cangialosi facilitated the Open Pedagogy Faculty Learning Community and writes about open education on her blog.
