The event

This interactive webinar will be a community discussion about a recent journal article examining two Australian case studies about OER-enabled pedagogy.

We will discuss how educators can tap into higher education’s cognitive surplus to enable renewable assessments. Our discussion will then explore how these practices support social constructivist models of teaching where students learn to create and share open learning resources for diverse communities.

The article we will discuss is:

Fatayer, Mais, and Eseta Tualaulelei. 2023. “Making the Most of Cognitive Surplus: Descriptive Case Studies of Student-Generated Open Educational Resources” Education Sciences 13, no. 10: 1011.

During this event, participants will engage with these themes through:

  • A short introduction by the authors, Mais and Eseta
  • Brief reflective commentary on each extract from the authors’ perspectives
  • Shared group discussion about themes highlighted by these extracts
  • Close readings of key extracts from the article
  • Concluding remarks from the authors

All are welcome. If you have time, we recommend reading the article beforehand, but this is optional and not a requirement for attending.
