OER Ghana: Mozilla Leaders X Training Curriculum
Participants in this 10-week learning experience will gain the skills and knowledge to help create a local OER network within their community.
We believe the best path to utilizing Open Pedagogy begins at your own website. You must shape your own truth before teaching others how to carve out an identity online.
We also believe the best open networks empower participants through an agentive apprenticeship where the learner goals align with the overall mission of the community and the network hols as much knowledge as the people.
To this end participants will work towards the following goals:
- Owning Your Data. Shaping Your Identity. Contributing to the Community.
