The premise underpinning DoOO is that “faculty and students must have a domain and web hosting of their own if they are to truly understand and engage the deeper possibilities of the open web” (Groom, 2013). By doing so, institutions can empower their communities to take more ownership of their online presence and improve their levels of web literacy (Burtis, 2016; Ian O’Byrne and Pytash, 2017).
This poster focuses on a DoOO pilot at a university and presents key elements as well as findings of an exploratory study on the experience of lecturers involved in the initiative. The poster offers insights on how these types of initiatives can help learners engage with open learning practices and the skills they can develop through this.
