CUNY and SUNY are currently making significant investments to support the deployment of Open Educational Resources (OER). OER are texts and other materials that reside in the public domain or that have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others, and their use can both save students significant amounts of money as they pursue their degrees and allow faculty to more easily integrate a range of voices and materials into their courses. OER are one significant pillar in a suite of open teaching practices that encourage faculty to explore the empowering benefits of networked, experiential, and active learning pedagogies in their teaching. Though OER have been available for a generation, they are increasingly being collected and bundled with other services via OER repositories such as OpenStax, Lumen Learning, and The Open Textbook Library.

Generously supported by the Provost’s Office, the GC Digital Research Institute guides an interdisciplinary cohort of graduate students, faculty, and instructional staff as they learn foundational technical skills that can aid–and even extend–their scholarship.
Faculty who have participated in past GCDRIs have told us: “The GC DRI presented hugely valuable tools that I plan to continue to use. I definitely will pass these digital skills to my students.”
Students have commented: “Not only did we learn great digital research tools, but we gained access to a network of people at the GC who are interested and/or have knowledge about digital methods. I learned about the workshops available, the Digital Fellows, and got to know people in other disciplines who made me think about my work in unique ways.”
We look forward to working with a new cohort this January!
