Community of Practice Coalesces to Launch Open Pedagogies of Care Collection

Sixteen educators from across the country find common cause in putting student well-being at the center of instruction. Now, the collection aids small and/or budget-restricted centers for teaching and learning. The idea that student well-being ought to be at the heart of our decisions about course design, instructional activities, assessment, and student success was the generative idea. My co-editor of the collection, Thomas J. Tobin, shared how the “ethos of care” lineage stretches back to Florence Nightingale’s instruction for nurses. It was picked up by 20th-century pre-K–6 educators, and, presently, the concept gains ground with higher educators thanks to scholars including Maha Bali and others. Make no mistake, it’s a gendered and racialized concept. It’s also humanizing.
