    Open Pedagogy: Curating a Faculty or Staff Portfolio

    Thursday, April 4, 2019, 4:30-6:00pm (Faculty Commons, N227)

    *Please RSVP by commenting on this post. Please share this invitation with your colleagues!

    Join the OpenLab Team, City Tech faculty and staff, and CUNY colleagues at our next Open Pedagogy event, where we’ll be discussing using Portfolios for faculty and staff on the OpenLab. While Portfolios are often associated with student work, faculty and staff have embraced the opportunity to create dynamic, compelling collections of their work in teaching and learning, research, student success, and academic initiatives across the college, as well as a space to reflect on these experiences. We’ll work to expand the portfolio beyond a “teaching” portfolio so as to consider its role for faculty and staff in non-teaching roles. We’ll discuss how Portfolios offer opportunities for authoring a professional identity within the context of the City Tech community, and some strategies for curating work in the open, public-facing space of the OpenLab. We’ll consider the following questions:

    • What are the affordances of creating and maintaining a digital portfolio on the OpenLab (or another digital format) instead of a collection of printed-out materials?
    • What curation strategies are important for Portfolios on the OpenLab? Is this the place for reflection or perfection?
    • How might Portfolios help you as you move through your career in higher education? In what other educational contexts could you see a Portfolio as a useful tool?
    • Considering the recentering of the teaching Portfolio, what opportunities and challenges arise when the teaching isn’t just in the classroom (e.g., OpenLab project, administrative responsibilities, committee work, altac careers)?

    This event is the second of two in our Spring 2019 Open Pedagogy series on curation in open digital pedagogy. We’re excited to continue our conversation around how “curation”–practically and conceptually–can be integrated into professional development on the OpenLab.

    Save the date for our upcoming linked workshop, “Curating Faculty and Staff Portfolios, ” where we will share best practices for developing a reflexive and professional teaching portfolio (Thursday, April 11, 2:30-4:00 PM Room L441A).

    Recommended Readings:

    *New York City College of Technology, CUNY is located at 300 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201. Enter the college on Jay Street (main entrance) and head up the stairs to your right (do not go down the few steps once you check in with security). When you reach the second floor, make a right again and head down the corridor. The Faculty Commons (N227) is on the right at the end.
