Extreme Makeover: Pedagogy Edition

Robin DeRosa, Plymouth State University


Open Pedagogy improves access to education, but this is access broadly writ.

Open Pedagogy treats education as a learner-driven process.

Open Pedagogy stresses community and collaboration over content.

Open Pedagogy connects the academy to the wider public.

DeRosa’s First-Year Seminar (FYS) had students serve both as consumers of information and producers of information (via a personal website or e-Port).

Students generated and voted on learning outcomes, attendance policy, and designed grading practice.

Students generated assignments to go with the learning outcomes.

Classes collated and collected their work into a handbook that could be used by future sections of FYS – available at https://press.rebus.community/opensem/ .
