About the Open Pedagogy Incubator

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
