GSC OE Ambassador Projects 2016
The following GSC Open Ed Ambassadors have designed either an OER or Open Pedagogy project to implement in the Fall 2016 or Winter 2017 terms.
Linda Couture – Special Education (School of Education)
OER, Open Pedagogy
Project Description: Locate OER research that supports competencies in EDU741 and EDU742 and compile a collection of these resources. These resources will address current trends and educational strategies to support students with an educational disability. In addition, I will research the use of engagement activities that would help students connect with Research.
Melissa Muszynski – English, Humanities (Undergraduate)
Project Description: I will create an activity in COMM540 where students will have the opportunity to create an OER resource based on project interests and passions. Students will have the opportunity to choose a persuasive topic from one of two places: NH Public Policy Studies or choose from one of the United Nations 30 "Issues of priority" for global citizenship.
Sherry Dumais – Healthcare (Undergraduate)
Project Description: Use an open resource text in my course HLTC627 Finance and Reimbursement in Health Care and supplement with up to date articles, videos, etc. where needed. Redesign the course to better implement OER
Pat Erwin-Ploog – Library Science, Digital Media (Undergrad, School of Education, Graduate)
- Design an activity in LIS801/801A to be used in teaching students in the graduate School Librarian program. The activity will focus on how to integrate OERs into their Collection Development Policies that address - evaluating making available, and using OERs in support of their school curriculum.
- Redesign SOSC519 Living in a Digital Democracy to support the module on citizen journalists. This course has never used textbooks hence it demands a review each year to keep current and relevant. The OER created will focus on skills, ethical considerations, and look at how technology has changed the reporting of news.
MaryBeth McNicholas & Kathy DesRoches – Leadership & Project Management (Graduate)
Project Description: This project will identify best practices and pilot the creation a repository of Open Education Resources (OER), and other digital resources for the departments within the Office of Graduate Studies at Granite State College.

Robert McPherson – Management/Organizational Behavior (Undergraduate)
Project Description: To explore, develop, and implement authentic learning , through a virtual collaboration teamwork project assignment that focuses on personal growth through interdependence, accountability, interaction, teamwork and leadership skills. The project will enhance the current content and process of the team project assignment while providing learners with an opportunity to contribute to an ongoing team and leadership course resource site (WIKI) for their current MGMT566 Organizational Behavior Class and future courses in Managment. This course will use an OER textbook. See Caroline Osteen’s project below.
Steve Covello – Communications (Undergraduate)
Project Description: Eliminate the textbook from my course, COMM601: Trends in Digital and Social Media, and replace it with a resource composed of curated open resources/articles.
Caroline Osteen – Management/Organizational Behavior (UG)
OER, Open Pedagogy
Project Description: Explore better learning materials for accelerated courses. Work with MGMT566 faculty to agree on an e-book.
