Open Education Week is a global event designed to raise awareness of free and open sharing in education and the benefits they bring to faculty, instructors and students.

The Library, in partnership with the Centre for Excellence in Learning & Teaching and The Chang School, are hosting a series of discussions, workshops and events in support of Open Education work underway at Ryerson.

Led by: Michelle Schwartz and Nada Savicevic, Educational Developers, Centre for Excellence in Learning & Teaching

Open pedagogy is about “rethinking the relationship between teachers, students, and knowledge” (DeRosa & Robinson). This experiential learning technique defines the role of the students as that of a creator of knowledge, rather than a consumer. Teachers learn alongside their students, and course content is dynamic, rather than set in stone. Assessments are designed so that student work can be shared outside the classroom, contributing to public knowledge, and, if openly licensed, to be built on by others. Join us to learn more about this learner-driven, experiential, and inclusive pedagogy. Bring your course outlines or assessments so we can discuss how they could be transformed through open teaching principles.
