Some thoughts gleaned from the conversation: first, there needs to be a recognition that 'open' applies here to more than just pedagogy and more than just the classroom. And there's a role here for 'open conversations' above mere content and resources. There are many ways to be open, and we have to ask why people are trying to define 'open pedagogy' (or 'open practices'). And there's a big difference between openness as granting permissions, recognizing freedoms, or making invitations.
