This session will focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Faculty Fellowship, a summer-long series of workshops where faculty learn about open pedagogy, the SDGs, and renewable assignments. Faculty work in interdisciplinary and inter-institutional teams to create the assignments. Those assignments are then deployed in classes, where students become the center of the learning process and create projects of their choosing to meet learning outcomes. During the session, participants will hear from faculty and students about their experiences and see examples of both the assignments and the projects. The fellowship has grown to include institutional partners from seven schools, located in Maryland, Arizona and Canada.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand open pedagogy
  • Contrast renewable assignments with disposable assignments
  • Determine own levels of interest in joining partnership
