Knowledge, Learning, Community

I really think this is last year's issue, and that most people have moved on, but I would be remiss if I didn't document David Wiley's definition of OER-enabled pedagogy in this article. "We define OER-enabled pedagogy as the set of teaching and learning practices that are only possible or practical in the context of the 5R permissions which are characteristic of OER." As the authors note (in the very next sentence), pedagogy is not usually defined in terms of copyright. But the point here is that students learn by doing, and copyright rules (as amended by open licenses) define what you can (or cannot) do.
