Since March 2020 and the beginning of remote learning, faculty, administrators, and community partners dedicated to providing community service to students and support to the local population had many discussions on the future of our work. Rare were the discussions in which Open Pedagogy, or the creation of educational resources by students, was mentioned. Due to the importance of Project-Based Community Service, it is surprising that these two communities don’t interact more often, especially in the time of COVID-19. The first objective of this presentation is to promote developing bridging between our two communities. The second objective is to discuss the challenges faced by a professor and his teaching assistant when using Open Pedagogy by asking students to create small projects to help and serve the students of the local school district. We will discuss the concerns of creating these small projects, evaluating them from different perspectives, sharing them with the public, and licensing them under an OER license.

Learning Outcomes:
1) Creating Bridges between the Open Education Community and the Service-Learning Community.
2) Identifying the problems related to the use of Open Pedagogy when helping virtually the local community in the time of COVID 19,
3) Developing solutions to respond to these problems,
4) Presenting problems and solutions from different perspectives: a professor and two teaching assistants.
