[Spring Workshop 2021] Expanding the Role of the Textbook to support Open Pedagogy

11:00 – 11:50 Friday May 28, 2021

Michael Paskevicius, Michelle Harrison, Tannis Morgan, Irwin DeVries, Tom Woodward

Session Description

Throughout 2019, collaborative sessions were facilitated at OER19 in Galway, Ireland; Cascadia in Vancouver, Canada; and ETUG, in Kamloops, Canada where participants were challenged to be creative about conceptualizing the concept of an “untextbook” and how it might differ from traditional texts based course resources. In this session we present the results of these efforts and share the next steps for this project as we go from concept to design. A prototype design for the first untextbook will be presented, sourced from OER and designed with new approaches for incorporating accessibility, interactivity, learner agency, adaptable structures, and multivoicedness.

Participants will have an opportunity to engage in small group discussion to critically review traditional and alternative textbook formats. We invite participants to critique the proposed design and contribute and participate in the development of this resource to support instructional design in the context of open pedagogy.
