Open UBC Week: Beyond Walls: Teaching and Learning in the Open

Name: Beyond Walls: Teaching and Learning in the Open

Date: Wednesday, October 31

Time: 12:00pm – 1:20pm

Location: Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Lillooet Room

Description: Open education is based on a set of values that are shared by a wide range of scholarly practices: that knowledge should be free and open to use and re-use; that collaboration should be easier, not harder; that people should receive credit for contributing to teaching and learning; that concepts and ideas can be linked in unusual and surprising ways; and that learning should extend beyond institutional walls. One of the exciting and challenging elements about adopting open strategies in teaching and learning is the notion of exposing work and interacting with audiences outside of the traditional classroom. This session will feature different practitioners who have taken an open approach with teaching and learning projects. They will share their experiences, strategies, mistakes and successes regarding working in the open, collaborating with different audiences and moving learning beyond classroom walls.
