Abstract

Learning exists in diverse places—education, work and interest-based activities—and in many different forms. The move towards opening access to learning courses provides learners with the possibility to bring together learning opportunities from diverse sites. However, there is a danger in narrowly viewing learning as the acquisition of resources. This view restricts benefits of open resources to experienced, self-regulated learners. This chapter analyses diverse pedagogies that enable learners to capitalise on digital, open resources. It calls for a fundamental rethink of our cultural view of learning and teaching, focusing attention on how we encourage learners to create and navigate their own pathways, placing the self-regulation of learning as the norm.
