Open Your Teaching: Enhancing Student Learning Through Open Assignments

October 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am
Douglas College, New Westminster Campus, Room N3406

Workshop presented by Will Engle: Strategist Open Education Initiatives, The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology, The University of British Columbia.

Open education encompasses a set of practices that make the processes and products of education more transparent, inclusive, and available to all people. While many assignments given in post-secondary institutions are what David Wiley calls “disposable” – read only by a teacher or a T.A. and then disposed of – open educational practices can enable learners to connect their work with authentic audiences and contribute knowledge to the world.

This hands-on workshop will explore the necessary ingredients for open assignments. It will examine real-world examples, best practices, and encourage you to brainstorm ways to open up your teaching.
