If I were to draw a single conclusion from this article, it would probably be that the concept of 'open pedagogy' is not sufficiently well-defined to allow for a systematic review of empirical findings. Most of this paper is devoted to offering an account of the concept as it has developed over the years, with interpretations varying from Wiley's OER-enabled pedagogy to Hegarty's eight key attributes to being "conceptualised as process oriented and emphasising collaboration (Masterman), learner directed (Bonica), or enabled by open licensing (Kruger & Hollister)." Moreover, as the author notes, there may be many examples of research on open pedagogy that does not employ the term (for example, editing Wikipedia articles). Image: Hegarty, via Bates.
