    In most of the tertiary learning instances in our region, we encourage the use of technology but we still maintain most of the interactions inside the classroom. Often, most students find it easier to pull the information and knowledge they need from the web. The formal classes become a passive pastime while the cling to technology is a great comfort.

    The webinar introduces Open teaching as an alternative course design that takes deliberate planning to create circumstances in a rhizome structure that encourages student expression and engagement through the use of social technologies and platforms.
