Join the OpenLab Team, City Tech faculty and staff, and CUNY colleagues at the next Open Pedagogy event, where they’ll be discussing the use of multimedia in open digital pedagogy. Although a large part of teaching and learning online is based in text, open digital pedagogy enables a multitude of multimedia possibilities. Capitalizing on the fact that City Tech is a college of technology, they will utilize an expanded notion of multimedia, broadening the concept to include not just images, sound, and video but also materials used for physical construction, 3-D printing, and makerspaces, in order to showcase and brainstorm new and exciting uses of open digital pedagogy techniques beyond blogging and other types of writing assignments.
Thursday March 23, 2017, 5:30-7:00pm (Faculty Commons, N227)
*Refreshments will be served. (Thanks to the City Tech Faculty Commons for its generous support of this event!)

*New York City College of Technology, CUNY is located at 300 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201. Enter the college on Jay Street (main entrance) and head up the stairs to your right (do not go down the few steps once you check in with security). When you reach the second floor, make a right again and head down the corridor. The Faculty Commons (N227) is on the right at the end.
Conversation will be guided by the following questions:
- How can multimedia enhance student learning? How can they impact the teaching process?
- What challenges have you/faculty encountered while working with multimedia?
- How can you (and your students) use the OpenLab (and/or other open digital tools) to incorporate multimedia into your course?
