This is an invitation to help redraft/improve this Bill of Rights:
Anyone can comment on the document. If you want to edit, just request access through google docs and I’ll add you to the editors.
In December I participated in a meeting with other MOOCsters (including friends like Audrey Watters, John Seely Brown, and Cathy Davidson and many new ones) and helped draft a “Bill of Rights”. The document was embargoed until today, which is why I wasn’t able to share it earlier.The general gist of it is in line with P2PU values – open, community, peer-learning – but there is a lot of room for improvement. For example bits and pieces seem too institutional (where the learner is still considered a participant, rather than the owner). Here is more on the document from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Anyone interested in making a P2PU version or discussing the points raised in the doc, please jump right in. Or leave comments below.
There is also a github repository, which will hopefully spawn a lot of other versions. Here is our fork -> https://github.com/p2pu/learnersrights
