Join CETLS, the BMCC Library, and E-Learning for a week of:

Open Classrooms

Opening our classrooms provides space for pedagogical community and conversation. All BMCC faculty are invited to open their online or face-to-face classes for visits from other BMCC faculty. Sign up by March 13 to be included in this year’s schedule.

Curious about what happens in other classes? Visiting a colleague’s class is an opportunity to learn about teaching in different classroom settings across disciplines. Sign-ups will begin on March 18.

Open Educational Resources

Interested in freshening up your course materials and saving students money? More than 200 BMCC faculty have redesigned their courses using open educational resources (OER) and other no-cost materials. At our OER lightning talks, you’ll find out how the process of moving to OER benefited teaching and learning, and will see examples of the OER materials in use at BMCC.

Open Pedagogy

Looking for new ways to engage students? Open pedagogy gives learners agency over their learning, and engages learners in constructing knowledge and sharing their creations beyond the classroom. Find out how your colleagues are incorporating open pedagogy in their classes or participate in a workshop about designing Wikipedia assignments.
