Summer 2020 | Open Pedagogy Fellowships – Apply by 7/24/20! 

The Library seeks applications for five Open Pedagogy Fellows for August 2020, each carrying a $1000 stipend.

The Fellowship experience will provide interactive training about how to find and use open resources – lowering the cost of course materials for your students.

Who is Eligible to Apply?

This Fellowship is for Graduate Center master’s or doctoral students who will be teaching at CUNY as adjuncts in Fall 2020. Preference will be given to adjuncts who will be able to teach in Fall 2020 using the OER / zero-cost syllabus they create, but all Graduate Center student adjuncts will be considered.

What happens during the Fellowship?

Fellows are required to attend: 

      • Four synchronous 2-hour workshops on the following dates, 1:00pm-3:00pm EST*
      • Tuesday August 4th
      • Wednesday August 5th

*If one of the above dates or the time slot does not work for you, please apply and note this on your application!

  • Syllabus Conversion Project: 
    • We’ll take a close look at your syllabus, and find equivalent materials that are free and openly licensed. You’ll learn how to identify and interpret Creative Commons, apply the principles of Fair Use, and locate Open Access scholarship within your discipline.
    • Fellows will create an OER / zero-cost syllabus to replace an existing syllabus for a course that will be taught in Fall 2020 – or – that was previously taught in Spring 2020 and is expected to be taught again.
