Checking the Map: Where We Are in our Journey to Open Education

The Open Education movement is not new to higher education. Open education has been a topic of conversation for more than a decade, and we know that, in many ways, open education directly aligns with the mission, vision, and values that drive SNHU. As this organization continues in our journey toward this area of the educational landscape, we know that we must build a strong community of openness to support our efforts.

In our presentation, we will be using a recent WCET blog post - "A Recipe for a Successful Institutional Open Education Initiative" by Rajiv Jhangiani - to frame the progress that SNHU has made toward open education in the last year. This framework will show the major wins that we have accomplished since our poster presentation last year as well as reveal some remaining gaps in our progression. We will ask participants to join us in better understanding our gaps and brainstorming strategies for filling these holes in order to build a strong community within our organization.
