Innovating #pedagogy 2017
The "innovations" they identify are: Spaced learning (which means structuring learning interspersed with other activities); Learners making science; Open textbooks (adapting them for local use); Navigating post-truth societies ("Epistemic education for the 21st century"); Intergroup empathy; Immersive learning; Student-led analytics ("Using data to help learners set and achieve their own goals"); Big-data inquiry: thinking with data; Learning with internal values ("Using students’ interests to inspire learning"); Humanistic knowledge-building communities ("Helping learners to develop knowledge")
In particular "Navigating post-truth societies ("Epistemic education for the 21st century")" is relevant to information literacy, and could be a hook for identifying its value as part of innovative pegagogy.
I think this is an interesting document, and nice to have innovation not simply tied to use of technology. The report is at http://www.open.ac.uk/blogs/innovating/
