Affordability, Inclusion, and Engagement: An Open Conversation about Open Pedagogy and Open Textbooks
Friday, Sept. 24, 2021
noon - 1 p.m.
Please join Aisling Quigley (Digital Liberal Arts [DLA]) and Louann Terveer (Digital Initiatives and Scholarly Communications) for a discussion on "Affordability, Inclusion, and Engagement: An open conversation about open pedagogy and open textbooks.” Open pedagogies are teaching methods that facilitate student agency over learning and in which students demonstrate understanding through the creation of information for their peers and/or others. How are faculty at Macalester and other institutions using open pedagogy to create a more inclusive and engaging learning environment? How can open textbooks be part of your teaching toolbox to help address issues of affordability, inclusion, and engagement in the classroom? Join us for a conversation to share your experiences, build your knowledge, and to challenge assumptions of these open educational practices. Facilitators will offer case studies and guide our discussion. An email with the link to join the event will be sent via swap-news.
