Open Access Open Pedagogy Benefits to Competency Development: From Sage on the Stage to Guy in the Audience

This paper describes the application of Open Pedagogy practices to an undergraduate organizational behavior course in a healthcare management program. Open Pedagogy is defined as the use and creation of Open Educational Resources combined with a high level of student autonomy and self-direction. The paper explores how the application of Open Pedagogy enhances soft-skill competency development. The course structure, assignments, and outcomes are discussed. Open Pedagogy may not be appropriate for all courses, but it is a technique worth considering for its potent experiential learning value.
