During this webinar, attendees will learn about a Montgomery College fellowship in which faculty created renewable assignments that required their students to become agents of change in the community. Attendees will understand the elements of the fellowship, including the application and selection process. The renewable assignments created by faculty fellows required that students tackle a United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) through their open pedagogy coursework. The fellowship required that faculty be grouped into interdisciplinary and intercampus teams so that student impact is maximized. The ultimate purpose of the fellowship is to achieve greater social justice in the community in which the work can be freely shared with the broader community. There were 15 faculty fellows grouped into seven teams across 12 disciplines and three campuses. The open pedagogy assignments were deployed in 16 different courses and 25 sections across the College. Through this Fall 2018 fellowship, 571 students were impacted by this groundbreaking and transformative work.

What is open pedagogy? Why is it important? How can you apply it to what you do? In this webinar series, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of open pedagogy and learn about open pedagogy practices that are being used in higher education. Participate in the webinar with your BMCC colleagues and join us for a post-webinar discussion.


The Open Pedagogy Webinar Series is offered by the Open Education Consortium and the SUNY Faculty Advisory Council on Teaching and Technology.
