Join the OpenLab Team, City Tech faculty and staff, and CUNY colleagues at our next Open Pedagogy event where we’ll be discussing the use of multimedia in open digital pedagogy. Although a large part of teaching and learning online is based in text, open digital pedagogy enables a multitude of multimedia possibilities. Capitalizing on the fact that we are a college of technology, we will utilize an expanded notion of multimedia, broadening the concept to include not just images, sound, and video but also materials used for physical construction, 3-D printing, and makerspaces, in order to showcase and brainstorm new and exciting uses of open digital pedagogy techniques beyond blogging and other types of writing assignments.
Our conversation will be guided by the following questions:
- How can multimedia enhance student learning? How can they impact the teaching process?
- What challenges have you/faculty encountered while working with multimedia?
- How can you (and your students) use the OpenLab (and/or other open digital tools) to incorporate multimedia into your course?
