The Open Pedagogy Incubator is a semester-long program designed to incentivize faculty to go beyond the first step in open education - adopting open course materials - to implement multiple open-enabled practices in their courses. Modeled on our successful Alt-Textbook program and the 2019 pilot of our OPEN Incubator, the Open Pedagogy Incubator brings together a cohort of faculty instructors to develop competencies in open pedagogy through a series of hands-on workshops, curated readings, and cohort discussions.
Program members gain knowledge, skills, and support in three main areas:
The potential of open pedagogy as a way to center faculty expertise, student agency, and social justice
Current and emerging models of open pedagogical practice including renewable assignments,
- Concrete processes for implementing open pedagogy in courses they are leading
NC State University Libraries is pleased to invest in a more open pedagogical culture by providing mini-grants of $1,000 to participants at the completion of the program. If you are interested in the program please apply by February 15, 2020 or each out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
