One-on-one & Small Group Consultations
- Making your Syllabus Accessible
Your syllabus is the roadmap to your course: the first place students look for readings, assignments, and more. But what if students can’t access the syllabus, for accessibility reasons? In this consultation, we’ll take a close look at your syllabus from an accessibility viewpoint: considering font choices, hyperlinks, headers, and PDF conversion. We’ll also talk about CUNY Academic Works, the institutional repository, with the goal of uploading your syllabus for greater visibility.
Set up a consultation.
Faculty Development Programs
- Faculty O.E.R. Fellowship
-Offered three times a year: fall, spring, and June intensive
The O.E.R. Fellowship is a faculty development program which supports faculty in replacing textbooks with no-cost open/alternative course materials. Fellows will curate an O.E.R. over the semester to replace a textbook as the only required material in a course they will teach the following term.
We’re seeking applicants for the Spring 2021 O.E.R. Fellowship – the deadline to apply is 11/24/20.
- Environmental Scan working groups
Faculty members conduct an environmental scan for free and open materials in their discipline to identify areas of coverage and gaps, to better inform the use of O.E.R. in a discipline / program.
Browse the environmental scan project template for reference.
- Returning O.E.R. Fellows Course Conversion
-Offered each semester
The Returning O.E.R. Fellows Course Conversion program is a way for former fellows to build upon the knowledge gained during the original fellowship. Fellows will curate an O.E.R. over the semester to replace a textbook as the only required material in a course they will teach the following term.
