Comforting Content for COVID Coping

Comforting Content for COVID Coping

The OpenLab Community Team would like to invite the City Tech community to join this project as a space to share comforting content– baby animals, rainbows, photos of your pets, nature scenes, soothing music or videos, wholesome memes, etc. All members will be added as “Contributors,” meaning you can create your own posts featuring whatever comforting content you love, which will then be curated by the Community Team. If you’re interested in writing about your own experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak or reading submissions from others, this project is not intended for that purpose, but we’re hoping to launch a separate place on the OpenLab for our campus community to commiserate (alliteration is fun!) very soon.

2019-2020 Opening Gateways Faculty Seminar

2019-2020 Opening Gateways Faculty Seminar

“Opening Gateways to Completion: Open Digital Pedagogies for Student Success in STEM” is a 5-year, $3.2 million grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Supporting Hispanic-Serving Institutions program (Title V). The goal is to support student success in mathematics courses that serve as gateways to STEM disciplines, courses that often act as barriers to progress and completion in these disciplines. The project, awarded jointly to the New York City College of Technology (lead) and the Borough of Manhattan Community College (partner) in 2015, brings the two institutions together in a cross-campus collaboration that will introduce open-source digital technologies, open educational resources, and active learning pedagogies into the sequence of high-enrollment mathematics courses required for STEM disciplines at each college.
