Introduction to Openness in Education
= course by David Wiley
"Welcome to Introduction to Openness in Education, Winter 2012. This course provides a broad overview of the ways in which openness impacts many areas of education – curriculum, instruction, learning, policy, technology, research, and finance.
In the past I’ve taught semester-long courses on both OER and on open policy, and both these topics felt rushed in a 15 week format. Consequently, the main goal of this course is to give you a broad grounding in the many aspects of the field of open education. Never fear, however – as you review the badges available for this course you’ll see that you have plenty of opportunity to dive deeper in the specific areas that interest you.
