Open Education is happening in various capacities in many disciplines at Keene State College. Many faculty are “doing” open education, whether it’s open pedagogy, adopting open educational resources (OER), or using/publishing open access materials, but don’t yet have the theoretical framework in which to talk about their practice. With generous support from the USNH Board of Trustees, faculty from across the system applied to participate in the 2016 Academic Technology Institute. The theme for the institute was Open Education which generated a lot of faculty interest and yielded a large pool of applications with many innovative projects ideas.
KSC faculty were encouraged to apply in teams of two to generate disciplinary and cross-disciplinary connections for students and support for each other. The five faculty teams and a brief description of their project proposals are here.
