These community guidelines were adapted from Ito (2014). CC 2.0. Community Guidelines for Research Activity. http://
forum.connectedcourses.org/ t/ community-guidelines-for-research-activity which were in turned taken from a study of the open course, Rhizo 14.
This was taken from somewhere else. Folks have done good thinking around syllabi and statements of open. Don't reinvent the wheel
This may leave you with a few questions: What about privacy? What does "public" and "in the open" mean? What will you do with my data?
Open is not private, private is not open. You can engage in #openpedagogy and still be private
This includes Public posts, comments, and artifacts shared on sites, apps and platforms such as Twitter, G+, blogs, Facebook, and Zeega:
Wow Google+ gone. Zeega...gone....Twitter selling third party data and ads...See why privacy and open shoudl begin with students owning theirt data. This is why #IndieWeb makes sense
Online communication, such as tweets, blog posts, and comments are generally out in the open and technically “public” and available for researchers to analyze and quote. Internet researchers have, however, documented how a particular communication may be technically public but viewed by the individual who posted it as meant for a more limited or private context.
Doing what is legal and what is right is not the same thing. Yes I could use this data to my heart content or can I? Is requiring students to use a social network silo truly open pedagogy? Making them allow someone to sell their data?
Participants in #WalkMyWorld may also be contacted and recruited to participate in surveys and interviews for specific research studies. In these cases, it will be incumbent upon the researcher to offer a clear explanation of the consent and privacy procedures, how the data will be used, and what benefit the research will provide to the individual and the #WalkMyWorld community. The researcher should also consider offering interviewees the opportunity to review transcripts and quotes.
IRB still matters when doing OER research
