Open Education: Building Connection, Collaboration, & Community
May 28-30, 2019

Academic Technology Institute (ATI) brings faculty together to explore and find solutions on how to integrate technology into their courses to transform their pedagogy and course design. Each of the 4 institutions (GSC, KSC, PSU, UNH) selected 10-15 faculty from diverse disciplines to participate in this multi-day event. Faculty who were selected to attend engaged in foundational and elective workshops infusing Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Pedagogy/Open Educational Practices with pedagogy techniques and technology tools.
