As part of our special series on emergent scholarship, Dr. Rajiv Jhangiani discussed the relationship of the open education movement with emergent scholarship. We discussed Rajiv’s work as a renowned scholar in the psychology discipline, and how that work in the scholarship of discovery coupled with his later faculty work in advocacy for open education, leading to administrative positions as a champion for top-down open education efforts and adoptions. What lessons can emergent scholarship learn from open education, one of the prime examples of successful emergent scholarship?
