Open Chat - Exploring Nuances of Open Educational Practices


Join Dr. Maha Bali for this Open Chat titled, "Exploring Nuances of Open Educational Practices. 

In this session, participants will explore diverse understandings of open educational practices, and have opportunities to analyze different practices along three continua: content/process centricity, teacher/student centricity and pedagogical/social justice focus. Participants will dig deeper into certain practices and consider how a practice can work well in one context but not another, and how to imagine redesigning it to better promote social justice along three social justice dimensions: economic, cultural and political.

The session will build upon the article listed below. No pre-reading is necessary for this event.
