Now that you have completed the Open Education Unit, you may have many ideas, thoughts, and questions you want to explore. The discussion forum is a chance for you to further explore the material and reflect on what you have read or learned on this topic. This activity should take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
To complete this activity:
- Write a post in the discussion forum. You may use your own website or blog to post a response and provide a link in the discussion forum. If you would like to share your thoughts publicly to encourage conversation, use the Twitter hashtag #POSEUBC.
- Contribute to the conversation by responding or asking questions in the forum
For this discussion we are not going to pose a question, instead we will ask you to respond to the following provocation developed at OER18.
To be honest, OER sometimes feels weirdly colonial. Does it create a power differential because of those who have the ability to creating things and make them available to those who do not have, instead of empowering those who do not have to create for themselves and their own contexts, while also being able to support that work, and those doing it, monetarily?Sava Saheli Singh (read the post)
