There is no “typical” student; how can we design courses that meet varied student needs? Universal design for learning (UDL) can help us build online courses that are not more accessible and flexible enough to engage a diverse group of students. UDL includes giving students various ways of acquiring information, interacting with the content and demonstrating understanding. Open Educational Practices (OEP) are a key strategy for developing flexible classes. We will look at how to design courses that increase student choice, encourage critical thinking, and improve learning outcomes. How can one build a course with this much student choice? It’s not only possible; it’s also orderly and fun!

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.
