In this column, two instructional designers (housed in an academic Library) reflect on their journey to operationalize care grounded in the tenets of instructional design, critical digital pedagogy, and open pedagogy. They provide concrete and actionable ways to implement these strategies in this present moment to create meetings, spaces, projects, curriculum and more to change the status quo while challenging and encouraging readers to do the next right thing where they currently are!
