Open Pedagogy Events & Workshops – Fall 2017

For events, refreshments will be served. For events and workshops, part-time faculty receive a stipend for participation. We hope to see you there!

EVENT: Thursday 9/28, 5:30-7:00pm: Copyright and Attribution in Open Digital Pedagogy (N227)

Join the OpenLab Team, City Tech faculty and staff, and CUNY colleagues at our next Open Pedagogy event, where we’ll be discussing copyright and attribution in open digital pedagogy. Working with and amongst our students and colleagues via digital pedagogy raises exciting possibilities for sharing, remixing and evolving the pedagogical work of the university. In addition, it raises important questions about intellectual property, scholarship, pedagogy, and the nature of digital communication. During this event, we’ll have a discussion about how to best cultivate an ethic of sharing and reuse while creating a community around attribution. To learn more, or RSVP, see the full post here.

Follow-up WORKSHOP: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5TH, 2:30-4:00PM: Best Practices for Copyright and Attribution (G604)

Do you have questions about what kind of materials you can share on the OpenLab? Do you want to learn more about how to properly attribute materials that you reuse from both inside and outside the OpenLab? This workshop will offer simple strategies for addressing these concerns. Please note: an OpenLab account is required.

EVENT: Thursday 10/26, 5:30-7:00pm: Teaching and Learning with Annotation (N227)

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.

Follow-up WORKSHOP: Thursday 11/2, 2:30-4:00pm: Annotating Text on the OpenLab

Do you want to share readings with your students on the OpenLab and be able to collectively annotate them? 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.  Please note: an OpenLab account is required and some experience with OpenLab is beneficial.
