Designing for Open Pedagogy

(View Complete Item Description)

Please join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) for a free and open webinar on Designing for Open Pedagogy. Open Pedagogy was first introduced by Lumen Learning co-founder David Wiley, as a way to capture how the use of OER can change educational practices. He relates that using OER in the same way as traditional textbooks is like driving an airplane down the road - it is missing out on what open can provide for student and teacher collaboration, engagement, and learning.

To help states, districts, teachers, and other users determine the degree of alignment of OERs to the Common Core State Standards, and to determine aspects of quality of OERs, Achieve has developed eight rubrics in collaboration with leaders from the OER community.

Anti-Bias Classroom Photographs Collection

(View Complete Item Description)

This collection was inspired by Ellen Wolpert's article about anti-bias work with younger students. Her article suggests that teachers should keep a collection of non-stereotypical photos of people doing regular things that can be referenced to stimulate class discussion or address biased language with young children. The photos in this growing collection are organized into (Google Drive) folders inspired by categories mentioned by Ms. Wolpert: Race, Age, Physical Abilities, Gender Roles, Families/Sexual Orientation, Jobs, and Ethnicity. Each folder contains different photographs curated from various Creative Commons websites, including Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. Currently there are 80 photographs in the collection. They have been assembled here for your convenience and represent many hours of searching, downloading, and editing. Reference: Wolpert, E. (2006).
