Access to students is a privilege. Students bring their aspirations, youthful approaches, passion, and excitement to their interests. When we ask students to create something (a product) for public consumption such as on YouTube, an online book, or shared Google docs assignment, the level of tension to create something worth viewing outside of class, is heightened. A creative project allows students to take risks different from just writing a paper. An open pedagogy project confirms that our students want to do well, and we have to trust the process that brings them there.
