Open Pedagogy Practices: An Overview

This guide provides a brief overview of open pedagogy practices in higher education, including open pedagogy definition, sample open pedagogy assignments, and resources available through Michener Library to support open pedagogy research and teaching.

Open Pedagogy: What This Is


Broadly defined, Open Pedagogy is the practice of engaging with students as creators of information rather than simply consumers of it. It's a form of experiential learning in which students demonstrate understanding through the act of creation. The products of open pedagogy are student created and openly licensed so that they may live outside of the classroom in a way that has an impact on the greater community.
