‘Always Be Closing’: the new economies of open education
This talk will explore the emerging political economies of education in a postdigital and postpandemic landscape, in which data-driven technologies and commercial companies now appear ubiquitous in mainstream educational activity. It will begin with an overview of the origins of digitally-mediated open education, highlighting prominent examples from the Open Education Resources (OERs) and Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) movements, underscoring themes of experimentation and community.
This will be contrasted with the recent development and circulation of data-driven services and platforms for education, which typically claim to offer new kinds of accessibility and scale, as well as ‘personalised’ and ‘adaptive’ systems which tailor educational content to individual students, and promise unprecedented forms of objectivity and precision. As such, this talk will foreground critical perspectives about the social relations, and in particular the relations of power, that mutually constitute the production, distribution, and consumption of ‘open’ education technologies in our times.
