On Friday, May 25, Hybrid Pedagogy hosted its second pedagogically-focused discussion on Twitter, this time on the subject of participant pedagogy. Inspired by both the notion from Howard Rheingold’s book Net Smart (MIT Press) that “participation is power”, and by the well-aimed A Letter from a Hybrid Student by Teo Bishop, the discussion worked to uncover ways not only for the student / teacher gap to be bridged, but also what it means for students to become involved in pedagogy. In this Storify, we’ve brought together some of the most compelling thoughts from the discussion.
