Open Pedagogy at the Graduate Center Library

Overview of OER Programming at The Graduate Center

Open Pedagogy Fellowship – For the past three years, Graduate Center students teaching at the CUNY campuses have participated in the Fellowship, receiving training on how to use, develop, and share open resources.

Breaking Open: An Open Pedagogy Symposium – The Symposium brought together Graduate Center students, library faculty, and students enrolled in MLIS programs, for an all-day event that focused on the intersections of pedagogy, the ethos of “open,” and decolonial perspectives. More information about the Symposium is available here.

Building Open Infrastructure at CUNY – Eight doctoral students wrote detailed guides to the open resources available in their field (Art History, Ethnomusicology, Cultural Anthropology, Early American Literature, Spanish). These texts were published on the Manifold platform, along with companion pieces by Luke Waltzer, Paul Herbert, and Krystyna Michael.

Open Pedagogy SeriesThe Open Pedagogy Fellows each contributed reflections on their use of open materials, in theory and practice. These pieces are posted on the Graduate Center Library Blog, as well as on this site.
