Panel Discussion: Open Education

Join panel members:

  • Cindy Ives, Acting Associate Vice President Academic (Learning Resources), Director, Centre for Learning Design and Development, Athabasca University;
  • Dr. Alan Davis, President Kwantlen Polytechnic University; and
  • Paul Stacey, Senior Project Manager, Creative Commons -

As they provide their own insights and perspectives to the following questions provided for roundtable discussion over lunch:

  1. How are you or your institution developing, using or implementing Open Educational Resources and/or Open Pedagogies?
  2. If no one at the table is involved how might you get involved? Do you think your school, region, province could/should be involved somehow?
  3. What are the benefits of going open?
  4. What are the challenges associated with going open?
  5. What synergies do you see between these open initiatives? How might you combine these open initiatives at your work place? What policies or practices are required?
  6. What questions does your table have for the panel around these open initiatives and their synergy?

During the panel discussion each panel member will introduce themselves and provide commentary on Open Education trends.  Moderators will pose roundtable questions for panel member consideration, and then crowd-source the same questions with the audience, fostering panel to panel and audience to panel, and audience to audience interaction.

The panel will close with summary statements from each panel member.
