#aboerjc March 2, 2021 @7pm MST. Celebrate OER WEEK w/ @DocBlom & @KlamnJam – Research and Showcase OER/P @Athabasca University(AU).

QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION

  1. OER WEEK is about OER awareness – do you consider yourself a novice, skilled, or proficient at OER/P awareness? Why?
  2. Are you part of an OER Community of Practice (CoP)? At your institution? Social network? How do you share your awareness of OER/P in your CoP?
  3. Do you have an OER activity to showcase or invite others to?
  4. How do you celebrate and influence Open Education?

Archive of FEB 2 @ 7 PM w/TheMichMonster #aboerjc Great discussion on strategies from FEB. 2 W/ @TheMichMonster https://www.edutopia.org/article/students-excel-when-they-find-purpose-so-how-do-we-help-them https://aboerjournalclub.home.blog/author/aboerjc/

Shif @GettinShifDoneFeb 2

I’ll end my contributions by sharing a resource I am intrigued by for the grand mission of empathetic communication! pz.harvard.edu/who-we-are/abo… #aboerjc It was lovely catching up with your thoughts, folks! G’night!

That internal work is so core to successful OEP, and there it is so much better to be told that you can help create a solution rather than be told you are wrong and there is only one ‘right’ answer. OEP bridges reconciliation, social justice, with building skills /6 #aboerjc

Show this threadShif @GettinShifDoneFeb 2

Thoughts on exp learning, OEP, & safe vs. brave space were covered by others, but I will reiterate that educators/facilitators have to run thru it first & recognize their own biases & limitations before attempting it w/ others – be ok with not knowing, saying so. /5 #aboerjc

Show this threadShif @GettinShifDoneFeb 2

I digress a tad because it’s important to also recognize the subconscious benefits of “finding purpose” – these distractions are overcome more easily if there’s a compelling enough reason to command our full attention. It’s also an excellent CBT tool. /4 #aboerjc

I am seeing this play out in my daily interactions w/ others, & know that it is somewhat due to the isolating nature of the pandemic. Every conversation feels like a test, & that I’m always going to fail if I don’t beeline toward the outcome. /2 #aboerjc

#aboerjc I see similarities between creating these safe spaces, OEP, and action research. Friere’s thematic investigation (1970) authentic reflection, facilitated, building trust, and co-creating knowledge. @TheMichMonster @DocBlom @verenanzDr. Verena Roberts @verenanz

These are the quotes to describe “safe learning spaces” (as a result of OEP and experiential learning) from my research: docs.google.com/document/d/1WR… #Aboerjc I heard similar ideas in the article….

Erik Christiansen @egchristiansenFeb 2Replying to @TheMichMonster

I think sometimes safe spaces are conflated with private spaces. The former can make it hard to raise critical/controversial questions, where the latter creates a private environment for people to ‘think out loud’ respectfully #aboerjc

Dr. Verena Roberts @verenanzFeb 2

Students repond to learning that they feel a part of. Not just inclusive, but their learning that looks like their dreams, connects to their passions & interests, is relevant, timely & meaningful. I firmly believe open learning provides these authentic experiences. #aboerjcMichelle Brailey @TheMichMonster

In my experience, undergrad programs do a good job of promoting critical thinking skills in a social context. Those conversations tend to be high level/general. Integrating this with critical thinking in a ‘puzzle context’ (dev real world solutions) is a big challenge #aboerjc

#aboerjc @verenanz @KlamnJam @egchristiansen , I think it is just us and you are all experienced teachers. Are there any practices you already use in classes or you have experienced that you valued? I bet others will be interested in your experiences!

Dr. Constance Blomgren @DocBlomFeb 2Replying to @TheMichMonster

(A bit late to the party, but here goes)
A1: No official support per se, but Lib, T&L, and ICT all indirectly play a huge role in “supporting” OER institutionally. Then again, it is mostly just pockets of “doers” that are finding ways to support their own OER #aboerjc

Q3: What types of funding does your institution offer to develop OER?

aboerjc Somewhat. #OER adoption is complex and seems to take time . Many of McGown’s points about adoption apply (awareness, time, money, tech support) #OEP principles are a natural means of being able to pivot quickly @egchristiansen @DocBlom

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

#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

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

#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 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

#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

Q2 #aboerjc The pyramid diagram (p. 264) indicates a progression from engagement, to cultivation to realization. Does this fit with your experiences with openness in education? @Cambrian_Jess @erikasmith @mcnuttsays @verenanz

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

I have 6 questions so let’s start! Q1. We will talk about the second half ( pp. 261 – 273) as it relates to open and distance learning (ODL). Bozkurt discusses pedagogy, andragogy, and heutagogy on page 264. How do these 3 influence your understanding of ODL?@verenanz
