KSC OpenEd Support
Support for the KSC OpenEd Ambassadors and their projects comes from many sources including:
Jenny Darrow, Director of Digital Learning
Jenny has been collaborating with faculty on web-enabled projects for over 15 years. Jenny works with faculty to design strategies that are centered on sound pedagogy and she is a passionate advocate of using digital tools to help students learn. Her current interests are Open Education and how the resulting ethos of DIY (do-it-yourself) supports student empowerment. She earned her Master of Arts in Teaching with Technology (MAT-T) degree from Marlboro College Graduate School in 2000. In her free time, she enjoys finding new running trails, adventures in the mountains and hanging out with her son and husband.
Irene McGarrity, Assistant Professor and Librarian, Mason Library
Irene's research interests are centered on open education, critical information literacy, and pedagogy. Her chapter in Metaliteracy in Practice (2016) titled "Developing Agency in Metaliterate Learners" presents a case study of teaching an open course with student-led content and student-generated assignments. She received her MA in English literature from SUNY New Paltz, an MSIS from UAlbany, and an MFA in creative writing through the New Hampshire Institute of Art..
