Exploring open pedagogy

Before the Zoom session on Wednesday, July 29, watch the video below, in which Robin DeRosa and Rajiv Jhangiani introduce the idea of open pedagogy. The video is about one hour in length and is set to start at 3:12 to bypass an introduction to the webinar series. Another option is to read this introduction to open pedagogy.


Write a brief response to the following questions:

  • After watching the video and/or reading about open pedagogy, how would you describe open pedagogy to a colleague (in a couple of sentences)?
  • Jot down a one-sentence description of your teaching philosophy or one aspect of your teaching philosophy. Or if you’d like to up your game, respond to this in the style of the #4wordpedagogy challenge on Twitter (e.g, from @mchris4duke: “Who’s missing? Teach that” or from @njlightfoot: “Learning often means unlearning” or from @amyburvall: “less testing, more questing”).
  • Where does your teaching philosophy or #4wordpedagogy intersect with open pedagogy? How are they related?

If you would like to share your ideas with your CUNY colleagues, you can post your responses to these prompts in the comments section below.

Note: Your name, but not your email, will appear with your comment. Feel free to use only a first name or a pseudonym if you prefer. You may also want to include your college after your name so that colleagues looking for compatriots can connect with you. The first time you post a comment, it will be held for moderation.
