Join the OpenLab Team, City Tech faculty and staff, and CUNY colleagues at our next Open Pedagogy event, where we’ll be discussing teaching and learning with annotation. This event is a follow-up to our Spring 2017 Open Pedagogy event on annotating texts in open digital pedagogy, and we’re excited to continue the conversation about how annotating digital texts can impact student learning and the teaching process. Our discussion will focus on how to increase engagement with the resources we build and share on the OpenLab. We’ll cover rationales and strategies for annotation, how its process and impact changes when moving from analog to digital annotation tools, and how it can foster collaboration.

This is a follow-up event to Annotating Texts in Open Digital Pedagogy, held in February 2017. Read the Recap here.

This event has a follow-up workshop, Annotating Text on the OpenLab, where we’ll teach you, among other things, how to use the plugin. This workshop will be held on Thursday 11/2 from 2:30-4:00pm in Rm G604 (RSVP).

We’ll Consider the following questions:

  • How can the use of digital annotation tools change the teaching and learning process?
  • How can we use annotation to increase engagement with the resources we build and share on the OpenLab?
  • What are some of the challenges of annotating different media, and what are creative solutions for these cases?
  • How does working individually, publicly, and socially change the way we view annotation and its functions?

  1. I shaall be looking forward ow to annotate on JPEG, TIFF image files as well as of images embedded in PDFs.

    We know we can highlight in PDFs but annotating figures on PDF is most needed in image or photography based courses we teach in medical imaging.

  2. REMINDER: Today, Thursday 11/2 the OpenLab is hosting a follow-up workshop, ‘Annotating Text on the OpenLab’. In this workshop, we’ll show you to use, a powerful and easy-to-use plugin that allows you and your students to annotate text on the OpenLab. Join us in Room G604 from 2:30-4:00p.
