Brief Abstract

Educators from around the world have built (& continue to build!) a community patchwork of ‘chapters’ into a quasi-textbook about pedagogy for teaching & learning in higher education called the Open Faculty Patchbook. Each patch of the quilt/chapter of the book focuses on one pedagogical skill and is completed and published by different individual faculty members from any institution wanting to join in. The success of the project has lead to a follow up/companion piece known as The Open Learner Patchbook, which collects similar stories from a student perspective. The stories will continue to be collected for as long as they keep coming in! This session will describe the Patchbooks and participants will discuss and advise where the projects should go next.

Presenters

Terry Greene is a Digital Learning Advisor from Fleming College, just returned from a 2 year secondment at eCampusOntario. He holds a B.Ed. in Elementary Education from the University of Alberta and a M.Sc. in Instructional Design & Technology from the University of North Dakota. He is interested in both the cutting and trailing edges of uses for technology in education. Especially those that increase the human element in technology-enabled learning. Hint, hint, those are probably the more open ones.

Educators from around the world have built (& continue to build!) a community patchwork of ‘chapters’ into a quasi-textbook about pedagogy for teaching & learning in higher education called the Open Faculty Patchbook. Each patch of the quilt/chapter of the book focuses on one pedagogical skill and is completed and published by different individual faculty members from any institution wanting to join in. The success of the project has lead to a follow up/companion piece known as The Open Learner Patchbook, which collects similar stories from a student perspective. The stories will continue to be collected for as long as they keep coming in! The project recently won the Open Pedagogy Award from the Open Education Consortium. This session will describe the Patchbooks and participants will discuss and advise where the projects should go next. And of course, participants will be asked to think about and share what they might want to add to the quilt!
