Open-Source Digital Tools in Open Pedagogy Projects at Baruch and York Colleges, CUNY

This session introduces an innovative approach to open education being piloted at the Centers of Teaching and Learning of two CUNY campuses--Baruch and York Colleges. Open-source digital tools which serve to create open pedagogy assignments have been an under-explored area of OER and one that deserves a closer look by researchers. They could also be a valuable resource for practitioners. Both York and Baruch have explored the creation of assignments or pedagogical guides written with the open-source digital tools Timeline,  as a way to increase awareness of these tools and also create innovative multimodal open pedagogy assignments. This session will first provide a look at two OERs I have created, one with Twine and the other with Timeline JS, and explain the process and the resources/time/labor involved. I will strive to give insight into why open-source digital tools have become one of the central foci of our programs and outline some ways in which 1) librarians 2) faculty and 3) students can master these tools and create OERs on their own.

Learning Outcomes: -distinguish between key open-source digital tools that are currently available for creating simple OERs by librarians, faculty and/or students
-learn strategies for introducing faculty to digital tools for OER creation
-review a new model for the standard OER workshop--one involving open pedagogy creation by faculty
