Workshop Details

This half-day workshop takes participants through good, bad and ugly scenario challenges to stimulate discussion about the benefits and barriers when using open education resources and practices.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore and critique pedagogical and technological solutions for use in open education approaches. Identifying simple solutions to implement in their work context will also be a focus, including learner and manager perspectives as well as their own.

Who this workshop is for:

This workshop is suitable for teachers and managers across a broad range of tertiary contexts.

About the facilitator:

Dr Bronwyn Hegarty is a Principal Lecturer in tertiary teacher education at Otago Polytechnic. She has been engaged in open education practices since 2006 as a teacher, educational designer and staff developer.

She developed a Three-Step Reflective Framework for her Doctorate research and uses this to scaffold the development of tertiary teachers’
electronic portfolios and blogs.

Her professional and research interests include reflective practice and ePortfolios, open education resources and practices, social networked media, and mobile devices for flexible learning and teaching.

The workshop is based on Bronwyn’s teaching practice experiences and an Ako Aotearoa Southern Hub funded project in which she was involved with Leigh Blackall: Open Education Practices: A user guide for organisations.
