Informed Open Pedagogy in the Classroom: Bringing Students into Working Open :sync:

Cynthia Mari Orozco (East Los Angeles College)

Open pedagogy is often touted as empowering; however, in order to reach the empowerment in which open educators strive, students must also receive direct teaching, mentorship, and/or onboarding into the open movement. Open practice is most powerful when students understand the open practice in which they are engaging with and exposed to, which I refer to as informed open pedagogy. In this session, I will cover several strategies for how I incorporate informed open pedagogy in my classroom as an instructor and as a librarian, including teaching about the course required open textbook rather than only using it, teaching students about their author rights in information creation, and facilitating discussions around scholarly communication and open access.
