dc.descriptionIntermediate
dc.description.abstractA lot of the momentum in the open education movement lies within higher education institutions, who by and large pursue OER towards the end goal of publishing open textbooks. While this is a great achievement for matriculated students, this framing implies a continuation of traditional student/teacher power dynamics, and largely sidelines participation from nonformal learning communities. The Massachusetts Library System and Peer 2 Peer University will reflect on their experiences creating, reusing, and remixing OER for nonformal audiences, where there isn’t always an expert in the room. In our discussion, we will also share our growing disillusion with the business model of mainstream MOOC and online learning providers, and consider opportunities for libraries to rely less on licensing proprietary content from vendors by helping to build open education services that ensure the equitable distribution of learning opportunities.
dc.description.abstractIn this discussion, Kelly (from Mass Library System) and Grif (from Peer 2 Peer University) will discuss the affordances and drawbacks of OER in nonformal education, drawing on both personal experience and aspirational thinking about the future. Can we imagine an alliance between formal and nonformal education that ensures that everybody can participate in meaningful learning opportunities?
