Decolonising learning design: Approaches to designing justice-oriented MOOCs
This 1.5 hour interactive workshop will look at approaches to designing justice-oriented MOOCs. Based on the premise that openness does not necessarily equate to justice, the concept of a justice-oriented MOOC is defined as a MOOC that seeks to address material, cultural-epistemic and political/geopolitical injustices in itself and in society. Drawing on the Dimensions of Human Injustice framework, the workshop posits three key take-ways that will lead to more justice-oriented design of MOOCs. These are unpacked through four decision-making spheres that MOOC design teams go through when embarking on a MOOC. The first sphere deals with the framing of MOOC production, highlighting the high-level decisions that are made at an institutional level. The second sphere involves the conceptualisation of the MOOC where the MOOC designers unpack the philosophical underpinnings, purpose, and envisioned target group. The third sphere involves situating the MOOC. This is where decisions are made that are external to the construction of the MOOC itself, relating to the contexts in which the MOOC will be placed. The last sphere is the actual construction of the MOOC, where power dynamics, pedagogical approaches, participation, content and assessment methods are brought together.
