Dr. Verena Roberts @verenanzNov 3Replying to @S_Hammershaimb

When it works … the open co-design process feels like what is often referred to as facilitation, but really means being an advocate or wing person – and the development of a PLN leads to indefinite support … #aboerjc

A5: I had to figure out how to contextualize OEP. I spent hours on my open learning design for my course, which uses OEP, BUT I decided the activity learning space also has to be open (open pressbook, or blog, or other open constructivist learning activity. #aboerjc

#ABOERJC I feel like that’s an effort to try to challenge perceptions of OER as poor quality. ‘Looking’ like a traditional textbook may make people more comfortable because it will align with expectations about what teaching materials ‘should’ look like

Rosemarri Klamn, MAPC, CPHR she/her/hers @KlamnJamSep 8

I can certainly relate to that feeling. Do you think we in Canada lag behind other countries or pockets of innovation when it comes to #OER and #OEP uptake? If we’re the laggards, who are the leaders?

Dr. Constance Blomgren @DocBlomSep 8Replying to @Cambrian_Jess @KlamnJam

Yes I think that it is part of the picture at the higher ed institutes. For profs & sessional instructors a textbook seems straightforward for all involved @egchristiansen @margymaclibrary #aboerjc

Cordelia Snowdon @CordeliaSnowdonSep 8Replying to @CordeliaSnowdon @DocBlom @Cambrian_Jess

#ABOERJC Lastly, from a purely selfish standpoint, I am even more appreciative of OER now because I can still access research without a student library subscription

Cordelia Snowdon @CordeliaSnowdonSep 8Replying to @DocBlom @Cambrian_Jess

#ABOERJC Good point! I am also curious how the pandemic has affected textbook sales and if we will see more student-led advocacy within the classroom. This was always challenging b/c of the power imbalance but maybe now pressure will increase?

#aboerjc A3: As a informal/formal post-secondary learner I see my early experiences reflected in andragogy but mostly in heutagogy; independence, and self-efficacy. Early DE experiences were dependent on resources – subsequent cohort experiences enhanced my ability to learn.Dr. Constance Blomgren @DocBlom

#aboerjc Q3 3. As an online (informal/formal) learner, have you seen your experiences reflected in @arasbozkurt Figure 5? If so, how? @egchristiansen @jennihayman @Cambrian_Jess @margymaclibrary @KlamnJam

Erik Christiansen @egchristiansenOct 6Replying to @DocBlom @KlamnJam and 4 others

From an educator perspective, I’d say that my #Library #InformationLiteracy instruction falls largely under andragogy or heutagogy – with more of a move toward the latter in DE. Often, providing resources so learners can ‘explore’ is all that’s necessary #aboerjc

Dr. Constance Blomgren @DocBlomOct 6Replying to @erikasmith @Cambrian_Jess and 2 others

Yes…I see that too. Pedagogy comes from K-12 but it has infiltrated the higher ed literature that is part of #oep #aboerjc

Erik Christiansen @egchristiansenOct 6Replying to @KlamnJam @thatpsychprof and 2 others

That’s an interesting take. Do you think certain types of individuals are ‘generally’ more likely to pursue DE/ODL? I’ve often wondered this myself and if there are personality differences and learning style differences #aboerjc

Dr. Constance Blomgren @DocBlomOct 6Replying to @egchristiansen @verenanz

Yes…so moving up the pyramid & the maturity of learners is part of enhancing self-directed learning. #aboerjc

Erik Christiansen @egchristiansenOct 6Replying to @DocBlom @Cambrian_Jess and 3 others

It does if we define engagement as the activities created and facilitated by the instructor. I suppose a counter argument could be to argue that at the highest stage, autonomous learners (mature learners) engage themselves. Perhaps I misunderstand the author’s argument 😉#aboerjc

Rosemarri Klamn, MAPC, CPHR she/her/hers @KlamnJamOct 6

#aboerjc. A2: My experience with DE and ODL is coloured by strong motivation to learn. My experience with promoting openness in education is similar to stages of pedagogy, andragogy, and heutagogy to a degree. @thatpsychprof @rlawson545 @verenanzDr. Constance Blomgren @DocBlom

Erik Christiansen @egchristiansenOct 6Replying to @DocBlom @verenanz

I think so, at least in lower level courses. There’s certainly a relationship – in my experience – between learner maturity and how much effort is required to engage the class #aboerjc

Rosemarri Klamn, MAPC, CPHR she/her/hers @KlamnJamOct 6

#aboerjc. A1: I like the relationship between learner maturity and autonomy and instructor control and course structuring that shift between the three concepts. @BrandonCarsonEd @catherinecronin @laurelbeatonRosemarri Klamn, MAPC, CPHR she/her/hers @KlamnJam

A1: The three concepts demonstrate a shift in how learning/teaching has evolved from teacher-centric to student-centric, similar to the evolution of DE and ODL (open learning removes barriers). #aboerjc twitter.com/DocBlom/status…

Student led sessions can lead to engaging classes, but it’s hard to create consistency in the experience. Student directed classes seem to work best with upper level courses where students are more used to seminar style lessons #aboerjc

Erik Christiansen @egchristiansenOct 6Replying to @DocBlom @verenanz

I think this pyramid is pretty representative. I do find that as engagement goes up (or as I try to increase engagement), my control of the class increases. #aboerjc

Q5: Please share your reactions to the excerpt below (p. 144). If faculty are more likely to adopt OER-EP if they can engage with powerful examples, what can institutions, practitioners, learning designers & advocates do to support open practices beyond OER adoption? #ABOERJC

Hello and thank you for your interest in the Alberta OER Journal Club. I’m Jess O’Reilly, and I have the honour of facilitating this first Twitter chat of the 2020 academic year. I invite you to explore David Wiley and John Wilton’s 2018 article Defining OER-Enabled Pedagogy with us this evening.

Inviting learners to participate in renewable assignment projects based on the principles of OER-Enabled Pedagogy (OER-EP) has become a cornerstone of both my teaching practice and my ongoing doctoral research. Over the past several semesters, I have been inviting learners to participate in renewable assignment projects based on the principles of OER-EP. On the whole, their reactions have been quite positive, and their choices highly varied. Some learners are enthusiastic about publicly sharing their work, while others are happy to share under an alias. Others do not wish to contribute their work to the Commons. Some learners choose to apply open licenses to their publications, and others don’t. The choices are highly individual and contextual – and that’s okay.

As we start an academic year that has been touched by the pandemic in so many ways, I’d like to return to the concept of renewable assignments, viewed through a “in the thick of COVID-19” lens. While my doctoral research focuses on learner perceptions of OER-EP, this evening I would like to focus our conversation on you – the practitioners, researchers, OER advocates, skeptics. Thank you in advance for your critical engagement and shared insights.  – Jess

Lederman’s prompts were directed to individuals who reflect on their experiences with shift to online learning @BryanAlexander @Bali-Maha (Maha Bali) @actualham (Robin DeRosa) @kreshleman (Kristen Eshleman) @joshua_r_eyler @OnlineCrsLady (Laura Gibbs) @penelope_a_moon @slamnteacher (Sean Michael Morris) @Muhlenberg (Lora Taub) @iLearnNow (Fabiola Torres)

Questions from @dougledIHE article Q1-Q4(in italics)

Q1. What has changed in your (or your colleagues’) teaching practices as a result of the COVID-19 crisis? Did your institution’s (or your own) priorities or guiding principles for learners change? What is different for your learners?

Q2. How do you expect your ability to support learners through technology to be enhanced or degraded? Will the relationship between content and process change? With the “college at home” environment being the norm, how will you reimagine equitable access for students?

Q3. Which changes are “forever” — permanent changes in the teaching and learning landscape? Which seem more likely to revert to pre-coronavirus approaches, as a new normal in higher education emerges?

Q4. What possibilities are there for rebuilding or evolving your own institution on the far side of the COVID-19 crisis? Is this opportunity for growth through the crisis different for your other alliances (e.g., personal learning networks or higher-ed professional organizations)? What is your emerging vision for post-crisis higher education in general?

Questions from @DocBlom @eriksation @KlamnJam
