Full description

Critical considerations, such as who is included and who is excluded when opening education and for whom open educational practices (OEP) foster equity and empower individuals in various contexts, have spurred necessary conversations about equity and social justice within the field of open education. In this special issue, The Intersections of Open Educational Practices and Equity Pedagogy, we seek to further the discussion with a focus on pedagogical considerations and practical applications of equitable OEP, adding to the current dialogue and critical questions posed by scholars around the world. In the introduction to a special issue on Open Education and Social Justice, Lambert and Czerniewicz (2020) posed the question, “Isn’t open education intrinsically a social justice matter?”, advancing the theoretical underpinnings of how open education can be aligned with social justice in diverse contexts.
