In this presentation, Towards Openness that Promotes Social Justice, Dr. Maha Bali shares different perspectives on the design and practice of open education that promotes social justice. Dr. Bali encourages participants to reflect on their own educational practices and to evaluate the assumption that openness inherently promotes social justice. Participants collaboratively explore how to strengthen the social justice orientation of open course materials and practices in order to promote social justice for diverse communities and groups.
Maha Bali is an Associate Professor of Practice at the Center for Learning and Teaching at the American University in Cairo. She has a PhD in Education from the University of Sheffield, UK.
