#aboerjc: Open discussion of Open Educational Practices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Members of the ABOER (http://albertaoer.com/)community of practice (CoP) live throughout Alberta and represent the range of higher education institutions within the province. Without funding for this CoP, distributed methods to maintain the awareness, use, and advocacy of OER and open practices are necessary to sustain momentum generated from earlier one-time OER funding from the Alberta government. Thus, in the autumn of 2018, an Alberta based OER Community of Practice (CoP) organized a new interpretation of a journal club. Using the hashtag #aboerjc, the informal group married the concepts of a twitter chat with a journal club. Using the micro-blogging format, a Twitter chat has a facilitator synchronously send out questions that participants, following the dedicated and associated hashtags, then answer and expand upon.
November, 2018 launched #aboerjc and has since occurred monthly, on the first Tuesday at 7 pm MST. Each chat has highlighted an article from an open access journal, advertised in advance so #aboerjc participants can engage thoughtfully and critically with the tweeted questions.
Moving to a distributed model of facilitation, the organizers tried various methods to attract participants, both synchronously and in the long tail of retweets and likes post-twitter chat. Archives of the chats are posted on the #aboerjc website, a wordpress site (https://aboerjournalclub.home.blog/author/aboerjc/). Members behind #aboerjc will provide our processes, and preliminary findings including: the experiential differences between OER and OEP; challenges of applying open licensing frameworks to cultural knowledge; OER/OEP to foster engagement with students; and differences based on institutional limitations. Participants will leave with a blueprint for how to engage in online scholarly discussions, and how to sustain these conversations over time. They will also leave with an understanding of the challenges of using Twitter and its potential for supporting open boundaries and open opportunities for educational change.
