Description

The growing movements in Open Education, Open Data and Open Science have the potential to revolutionize both the teaching of science and scientific practice itself. Open Pedagogy enhances learning by empowering students to take greater ownership of how and what they learn, and to not just consume from, but to contribute to the knowledge commons. As science teachers, we can be more effective and inclusive of all learners when we leverage a broad variety of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open teaching practices; practices that make learning more accessible and engage all of our students in uncontrolled, learner-driven scientific discovery in dialogue with the wider public.  

We can also bring the ideas of Open Science (making all stages of scientific work transparent, widely collaborative and accessible) into our pedagogy, and raise its possibilities for vastly increasing our extent and range of knowledge, and for making scientific practice more effective, inclusive, and beneficial for all people. Emphasizing the values of Open Science and Open Data in our classrooms and research labs teaches our students to direct their scientific questions towards the public good. 

Scientists who teach can create and strengthen the connections within the Open Ecosystem between Open Pedagogy, Open Science, Open Data, Open Access publishing and OER - connections that encourage learners to contextualize their understanding of science in social contexts, build community with others, and to enact their scientific practice to serve citizens in their local and global communities.

A recording of the presentation is also available.
