Introduction to Openness in Education
Welcome to Introduction to Openness in Education. 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, among others.
My name is David Wiley, and I'm the designer of your open course. You can learn more about me at my website, davidwiley.org.
The main goal of this course is to give you a broad but shallow grounding in the primary areas of work in 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.
If you’ve never taken an open course, you’ll want to pay close attention to Module 1 which describes how the course works.
I’m looking forward to learning together with you!
