What Open Education Means to Me: Day 1 #makingsense18

The Meaning of Open Education As one of eCampusOntario’s Open Fellows, I have spent a lot of time over the past few months exploring what open education means to me in this blog. I still believe what is in the video below, but my awareness of the open education landscape and possibilities has evolved. If I was going to summarise my current understanding of open education in one word it would be: opportunity. In Ontario, open education has tremendous opportunities for […]

Day 1 – Making Sense of Open Education

Cambrian Open Day: What is Next? #OpenDayCambrian @eCampusOntario #OEFellows

Today we started a conversation. The day opened with an all-stakeholder session that was attended by people from a variety of departments at Cambrian. Then, faculty retreated to the hub to do a deep-dive into various areas of openness. Information was shared, engaging questions were asked, and new ideas began to form in the room. A wonderful way to start the #oep conversation at @cambriancollege Thank you to faculty and planners for support. #opendaycambrian @cambrianhub @Cambrian_Jess @MarnieSeal @CambrianLibrary @melyoung00 @eCampusOntario […]

The Internet’s Own Boy: Film Screening Reflections

The Hub screened The Internet’s Own Boy as a kick off for tomorrow’s Open Day. The full movie was released under a CC-BY license and is available on YouTube. It is clear that Aaron Swartz was driven to solve problems and valued open learning from a very young age. Examples were given of him as early as age 3. Throughout his life, his impact on RSS, Reddit, the world wide web, and laws shaped the history of the Internet as we know it today. His story […]

Applying the CRAAP Test

Focusing on OER textbook selection that I made for Porter’s Five Forces, I will apply the CRAAP Test in this post. Evaluating the Industry in Mastering Strategic Management, 1st Canadian Edition (2014) by Janice Edwards on BC Open Textbooks. Currency  This textbook was published in 2014 on BC Open Textbooks and is based on Mastering Strategic Management by University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing in 2011. While this may be bordering on dated, most concepts of Strategic Management have not changed and […]

OER for Porter’s Five Forces

Teaching and learning with case studies in the area of Business has been a fascination of mine for some time. Recently, David Tell (@bdt53 ‏) and I have been debating creating an Open Education Resource on the case study method that could be used as a workshop or seminar for Business students at our college. With this in mind, I searched for Open Education Resources (OER) that might be used in this project. My first attempts were fruitless. I started to […]

Panel: Use of Open Educational Practices (OEP) and Resources (OER) in Ontario

As one of the fellows who shared what a profound impact eCampusOntario is having on our work in today’s panel, I wanted to invite everyone to take a closer look at how you can become involved with eCampusOntario. There are opportunities to engage with them in many formats as little or as much as you want to. #CNIE2018Sudbury: Five of our @eCampusOntario #OEFellows begin this afternoon’s panel discussion, “Use of Open Educational Practices and Resources in Ontario.” #CNIE2018 #RCIE2018 pic.twitter.com/EhF79Fc8GR — […]

What Openness looks like for NurseKillam #OEGlobal18

Using open resources and building a supportive community of educators has been an energizing and empowering experience. Openness is an individualized experience that requires thoughtful contextualization. For some, it may be culturally or professionally inappropriate to share. Part of openness is being non-judgmental of the choices other educators make. I choose to share as much as possible in formats that are easily reused. For me, it is an ongoing process of learning how to share, while critically reflecting on artifacts […]
