Open Pedagogy

Open pedagogy, also known as open educational practices, is an "access-oriented commitment to learner-driven education and a process of designing architectures and using tools for learning that enable learners to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part" (DeRosa and Jhangiani). Through the use of collaborative practices and technologies, educators and learners can acts of co-creators of knowledge. One popular application of open pedagogy is the development and use of renewable assignments – assignments that go beyond the strict classroom application of traditional research papers.
