Open Teaching & Digital Pedagogy
February 22 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Often, teaching and learning are confined to private spaces: our classrooms, offices, and the emails we share with students. Both students and faculty have much to gain from opening their classrooms and making their work more visible to and engaged with broader publics. However, open pedagogy can bring with it some risks that are worth considering and exploring.
In this workshop, we’ll consider the possibilities of open teaching, and explore approaches that allow instructors and their students to engage with wider audiences. In particular, participants will think through experiential learning opportunities in and around the city, using open educational resources, incorporating open digital tools or platforms (such as Blogs@Baruch) in their teaching, and participating in public conversations about their classroom practices. Because openness is often facilitated by digital technologies, this workshop will also address concerns about copyright and attribution in student work, and critically consider the implications of our work for student data and privacy.
Please bring a laptop to use if you have one. If not, CTL staff will have a limited number of laptops on-hand to share.
