Anita Zijdemans Boudreau (Ph.D) will present on Openness in Learning, Teaching, and Instructional Design
Open education today can be described as iterations of social and technological innovations that reduce barriers to access, and create multiple opportunities for educational practice. This session will: a) review how the historical origins of openness have played out in the current technological context in terms of learning, teaching, content development, and the design of online environments; and b) consider ways in which educators in traditional institutional settings can think about exploring openness in their own practice as a response to the significant global shifts occurring outside of the academy.
