First term reflection

My first term of the Doctor of Education in Distance Education program at Athabasca University has drawn to a close. I’ve been amazed at what I’ve learned and how I have grown through this first course. I’ve encountered andragogy, learning theory and the Antigonish movement. I’ve explored interaction, open learning and globalization. I’ve discovered the importance of cohorts and have experienced first hand the support and care that this group provides. Sharing a learning journey with 11 other members has been one of this fall’s highlights.

Here is my final paper for 801. I’ve found openness in learning to be a fascinating topic and I hope you enjoy reading a little about Open Educational Resources.
