Open Pedagogy in the Classroom

What are the implications for open pedagogy in the classroom?

Some implications of open pedagogy for teaching, as discussed by participants at the March 2021 Open Pedagogy Workshop.

Open pedagogy has the potential to…

  • Give more opportunities for students to recommend methodologies or areas for exploration, involving them in the process of learning
  • Help students understand themselves and map their relationships to the world, this work could be done collaboratively
  • Take the kind of work (like creating questions) that is usually more arts and humanities based and move it into a space that can be used for the sciences
  • Build a more collaborative and balanced relationship between faculty and students
  • Validate student experience and knowledge, give weight to student contributions
