Case Studies on the Student as Producer

The student as producer pedagogical model emphasizes the role of the student as collaborators in the production of knowledge. In this model, the university's approaches to learning and research are closer aligned; for example, students, similar to researchers, are asked to share their work beyond the walls of the classroom and not just with their immediate instructor or advisor. This session will examine how educators, through the embrace of open pedagogies, can support learners in their role as active participants in both their learning and their institution's intellectual output. It will explore case studies from multiple open courses, assignments, and projects at the University of British Columbia and other institutions that asked learners to not only be students but also creators, authors, researchers, performers, instructors, scholars, designers, and problem solvers. The session will provide an in-depth discussion on the how choices around accessible curriculum, remixable content, and extendible technologies can impact student abilities to fully participate and engage as equals in their learning. It will also explore best practices for how institutions can establish sustainable frameworks that support emerging pedagogical practices, open education initiatives, and modern web trends, such as open badges, leading to authentic learning experiences that empower students.

This session will incorporate audience participation through discussion and brainstorming. The presenters will be responsive to questions and audience feedback will determine the scope of topics covered. Participants will be encouraged to discuss and reflect on how topics and strategies can be applied to their home institutions.
