Steve Hargadon had a FutureofEducation.com conversation with Alec Couros on open teaching. You can listen to the interview or open up the Blackboard Collaborate session.
Alec defines open teaching as the “facilitation of learning experiences that are open, transparent, collaborative, and social. Open teachers are advocates of a free and open knowledge society, and support their students in the critical consumption, production, connection, and synthesis of knowledge through the shared development of learning networks.”
Steve Hargadon was the main force in organizing the Library 2.011 Conference last year.
