At the risk of opening Pandora’s box (or the proverbial “can of worms”), I’m curious about members’ thoughts about Explicit Instruction (aka “Direct Instruction”; not OA; not OA either) in relation to the values at the centre of the movement for Open Education.
In other words, how might some reconcile the values we espouse in the OE movement and make an explicit push for teacher-led processes of instruction?
(Adopting those strategies is a completely different matter. I’m specifically thinking about “DI advocates”… and I strive to acknowledge all sorts of biases in the matter.)
Yes, broad topic. Potentially fraught.
As we say in French, I’m throwing a brick in the puddle.
