What is Peeragogy? We didn’t discover it, but we explain it as the “art and science of collaboration,” and “the no-longer-missing guide to peer learning & peer production.” This year, we celebrate 10 years of exploration, collaboration, and publication – and as always, we welcome newcomers at peeragogy.org.

Please visit the Peeragogy Project YouTube channel to submit questions before or during the livestream! Then, join the “afterparty” at meet.jit.si/peeragogy to create a Project Action Review (PAR).

Is it time to rethink how we acquire knowledge at the various stages of life? Join us to discuss “Opening Education” on the Peeragogy In Action livestream/podcast Tues., January 25 at 2pm UTC-5. Any comments or questions you post on the simulcast channels, we will be able to present to our panelists.

Peeragogy editorial board member Joe Corneli of Oxford Brookes University moderates the discussion with Peter Shukie, founder of Community Open Online Courses and contributor to the recent Working Class Academics conference; and David Preston, open & alternative education advocate and Peeragogy Handbook v3 contributor.

Top-down instruction remains the typical model in traditional education. Teachers create subject lessons for pupils that are divided into chapters, units, and lessons. Students display their mastery via assignments, exams, essays, and projects.

As David Preston writes, “Open-source education invites us to create meaningful learning experiences with students instead of for them. We all begin our lives insatiably curious about the world around us, so what can we do to reawaken that sense of delight in wondering? For years I have begun the conversation with students by reimagining the power of the question and asking them to consider one of their own.”
