MIT OpenCourseWare supports Open Education Week
Culturally responsive teaching & open education resource event
Announcing MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW)’s upcoming resource sharing event, Culturally Responsive Teaching & Open Educational Resources: Collaboratively Building a Database, during Open Education Week. Come support us as we support the open education community!
MIT OCW is working with Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) and participating Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) on the creation of a shared resource document that speaks to the intersection of culturally responsive teaching and open education practices. Read more about OCW’s collaboration with MERLOT and HBCUs: “From open access to educational equity.”
Event details below!
Culturally Responsive Teaching & Open Educational Resources: Collaboratively Building a Database
Calling all experts and amateurs! Join us to collect and curate resources on the intersection between culturally relevant teaching and open education practices.
Log into our shared Google Doc any time during Open Education Week but especially Tuesday, March 7 @ 1:00–2:00 p.m. EST, when MIT OpenCourseWare, HBCU, and MERLOT stakeholders will be live in the comments.
Categories will include: scholarly literature, blog posts, websites, podcast episodes, information about local thought leaders, social media posts, and more. There will also be an open questions category.
We believe culturally responsive teaching and open education, when combined, have the potential to promote a more just society. We’ll use this document to inform our collaborations with educators doing the hard work of realizing this vision. We hope you will, too.
We look forward to growing together this new open database of resources that will inform important equity work in local and global spaces.
