Here’s what’s happening at the Center for Teaching and Learning this week:

CTL Workshop: “Vocat and Video Annotation”
Tuesday, 2/6, from 2:30-3:30pm in NVC 14-275

Interested in experimenting with multimedia assignments? Seeking out solutions for recorded lectures and review sessions? We’ll help you get setup on Vocat, Baruch’s homegrown multimedia uploading and evaluation tool, and discuss its wide array of uses both inside and outside the classroom. Students can use Vocat to post presentation videos, screen captures, photographs, art projects, visual aids, or podcasts. Professors can upload recorded lectures or review sessions, and Vocat also accepts YouTube videos so that both students and instructors can embed and annotate outside content relevant to the class. Whether you’re a Vocat veteran or interested in trying it for the first time, this hands-on workshop will help you get the most out of the tool.

 

Later in February….

CTL Workshop: “OER Creation and Development”
Wednesday, 2/14 from 12:30-2pm in NVC 14-269

This workshop will introduce attendees to and differentiate between OER (Open Educational Resources) and zero cost materials. We will focus on OER specifically as an opportunity to revisit pedagogical approaches, raise student information literacy, introduce a wider variety of course materials, and embrace interdisciplinarity. We will showcase already existing OER that are available for curation as well as talk about the type of work involved in the creation of new OER.

CTL Workshop: “Open Teaching and Digital Pedagogy”
Thursday, 2/22 from 12:30-2pm in NVC 14-269

Often, teaching and learning are confined to private spaces: our classrooms, offices, and the emails we share with students. Both students and faculty have much to gain from opening their classrooms and making their work more visible to and engaged with broader publics.  However, open pedagogy can bring with it some risks that are worth considering and exploring. In this workshop, we’ll consider the possibilities of open teaching, and explore approaches that allow instructors and their students to engage with wider audiences. In particular, participants will think through experiential learning opportunities in and around the city, using open educational resources, incorporating open digital tools or platforms (such as Blogs@Baruch) in their teaching, and participating in public conversations about their classroom practices. Because openness is often facilitated by digital technologies, this workshop will also address concerns about copyright and attribution in student work, and critically consider the implications of our work for student data and privacy.
