The Queens College Library is celebrating Open Access Week with a workshop on all things open! The workshop will be held on Monday, October 25, 12:15-1:30 PM.
We want to introduce you to some helpful tools that can make it easier to locate, use, and create open resources. This year, we’re especially focused on how open resources can help your pedagogy. This is a practical workshop that will introduce you to specific tools and resources, including:
- Locating and using public domain and open archives, manuscripts, and images from repositories like the Internet Archive, Queens Memory, and NYPL
- Increasing your scholarly profile and preserving your academic work through CUNY Academic Works and Google Scholar‘s Profiles
- Creating and using open educational resources in collaboration with students, using tools such as Manifold and hypothes.is
If you’re interested in using open or public domain works in your class, you may be interested in Annie Tummino’s presentation about locating open archives and the quirky and unexpected ways these items are being repurposed by scholars, artists, and gamers. You may also want to tune in for James Mellone’s talk on finding and using primary sources.
If you’d like to know more about the pedagogical benefits of collaborating with your students to build open educational resources, Leila Walker’s workshop on OER-building as pedagogy may be of particular interest.
If you’re thinking about how you can help your graduate students promote their research – or how you can promote your own! – you should attend Nancy Foasberg’s presentation on scholarly profiles and sharing your work.
