Where is the ‘Justice’ in Open Education?

April 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Thanks to everyone who joined our Where is the ‘Justice’ in Open Education? webinar on Monday, April 26, 2021.

NEBHE plans to offer additional webinars in the future. Is there a topic you would like to recommend? If so, please let us know.

In a third and final webinar in its series on exploring aspects of Open Pedagogy, the New England Board of Higher Education is honored to welcome Jasmine Roberts as she leads us in a discussion on the importance of centering social justice in this work.

Open education frameworks address high-cost course materials, but with an increase in the adoption of open educational materials, conversations about inclusive teaching, social justice, and anti-racism pedagogical practices need to be at the center of open practices. Roberts’ talk will address the urgency of adopting social justice practices in open education and strategies on how to do this.

This webinar is intended for faculty, librarians, and anyone interested in seeing real examples of what Open Pedagogy looks like in practice and advice for getting started on your campus.
