Have you heard of open pedagogy? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to transform your course using open pedagogy? Open pedagogy centers around learner agency, focuses on content creation, provides scaffolded learning experiences and emphasizes renewable assignments versus disposable ones. We invite you to join University Libraries for session two of the Affordability Lunch and Learn series, where we will discuss our collaboration to transform International Studies 4850: Understanding the Global Information Society using open pedagogy. In this course, students use information literacy concepts to explore how information is produced, disseminated and interpreted globally. We will discuss our strategies for selecting tools to implement open pedagogy in the classroom – the authoring tool Pressbooks and the social annotation tool We will also discuss how we scaffolded the learning experience with guest speakers, Hilary Bussell, Amanda Larson and Maria Scheid. Amanda Larson introduced and taught students how to use Pressbooks to complete their assignments. Maria Scheid introduced and taught students about copyright, fair use and licensing, allowing them to make informed decisions about how their work would be disseminated at the end of the semester. Attendees will leave with strategies and resources for incorporating open pedagogy in the classroom and collaborating with University Libraries.

This virtual program will include automated captioning. If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please email as soon as possible. Requests made at least one week prior to the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
