Workshops offered

Introduction to Open Educational Resources

Introductory workshops are offered in the beginning of the fall term.

You’re invited to learn more about free and open educational resources (OER) and how they can support instruction and student access to course materials.

Participants are encouraged to bring questions; no level of familiarity with OER is required. Workshops will be conducted remotely over Zoom. 

  • This workshop will provide an introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER) and related topics such copyright, Creative Commons licensing, Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC), and where to find free and open materials in your discipline.
  • Part-time faculty who participate will be compensated at their hourly non-teaching adjunct rate for attending.

One-on-one & Small Group Consultations

We offer one-on-one and small group consultations.

  • Make your Course Materials 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.
