Open Education: Equity & Engagement and the evolving community college

Open Education: Equity & Engagement and the evolving community college

Community Colleges are the original open institutions.In this presentation, Robin and Jim will review why an how Open Educational Resources (OER) and open pedagogy can help recharge and reclaim the community college mission. They will offer faculty a vision for transforming not only their teaching and courses, but also their institutions, to more justly serve the learners of New Hampshire. Most importantly, drawing on their experience, they will share ideas about how “open” can invigorate teaching and learning, and help faculty engage students in work that is meaningful to their personal goals and to the larger world beyond college.
