Bootcamp Schedule

The Graduate Center’s OER Bootcamp was made possible by the state funding awarded to CUNY and SUNY in 2018.  Participants entered the program with varying levels of experience in open resources, and were encouraged to think broadly about potential ways to interweave the conceptual framework of “open” into their teaching materials and pedagogy.

The schedule for the day is below. For detailed panel descriptions, see the full program.
