Designing Transformative Learning

ISS 262

The term 'open source' is frequently used to denote software source code that is freely available, modifiable, and shareable. However, the term has much wider applicability and relevance. The core values of open source--open knowledge and access to information, collaboration and community, transparency and meritocracy, inclusion and diversity, and iterative creation and adaptability--have profound implications for 21st century learning. In this learner-centered, project-based course, students will research the intersection of open source concepts, technology, and education innovation and share their knowledge across public-facing open-access media.
