Making Space: Disrupting Ableism with Open Practices
Moderator: Tim Carson
Presenter: Kaela Parks
In many ways, open educational practices are about consciously and creatively making space. By opening our practices we can not only center voices and viewpoints that have historically been quieted or even silenced , but also create space for ways of being that have been discouraged or even disallowed.
In this keynote, we will explore ideas around what it means to make a space that is not just technically accessible, but accessible in practical ways. We will explore what it means to go beyond guidelines and standards to get at the deeper issues and aspects of education that have historically pushed some people out.
