Please see the invitation below to attend, “Open Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning Empowered.” 

This two-part workshop, led by Brooklyn College faculty, will focus on open pedagogy, which enacts the belief that students can and should be not only consumers of knowledge but also producers of it. 

The Brooklyn College COVID-19 Archive@ A Journal of the Plague Year and the Brooklyn College Listening Project will be featured as examples of students as producers of public scholarship.

Innovative open pedagogy projects utilizing, Story Maps, and the Manifold platform will be presented. All of these digital tools are freely available to all CUNY students and faculty.

In the first session (Wednesday, July 28), participants will discuss how they can create an open pedagogy assignment for their course and learn to use and install, create a basic Story Map, and learn how their students can use Manifold for their research project.

The second session (Wednesday, Aug. 4) will feature three Brooklyn College faculty who have created and developed open educational resources and utilized OER to adopt either an open pedagogy approach, Team-Based Learning, or a Flipped Classroom practice.

Participants are welcome to join both or one of the sessions.
