Exploring Nuances of Open Educational Practices

Welcome to this webinar on Wednesday October 18th at 11:00 – 12:00 (CEST)

Dr Orna Farrell is Associate Professor of Education, specialising in digital education based in the School of Policy Practice, Institute of Education in Dublin City University (DCU).

In this session, participants will explore diverse understandings of open educational practices, and have opportunities to analyze different practices along three continua: content/process centricity, teacher/student centricity and pedagogical/social justice focus. Participants will dig deeper into certain practices and consider how a practice can work well in one context but not another, and how to imagine redesigning it to better promote social justice along three social justice dimensions: economic, cultural and political.
