Open Pedagogy

Session 1
Dr. David Wiley

Using open educational resources, like open textbooks, can both save money and increase student success. But using OER also unlocks new pedagogies unavailable to teachers who use textbooks and other curriculum from commercial publishers. In this workshop, Dr. Wiley will discuss the research base behind "killing the disposable assignment" and demonstrate how using OER allows student assessments to take on value and meaning for students and teachers alike.

Session 5
Chris Lehmann, Pia Martin

This session is for educators who want to explore starting or improving an Advisory Program in their schools.
