After participating in Kingsborough Community College’s Open Pedagogy Fellowship during the Spring 2021 semester I designed theses assignments in order to better align my course assignments and learning outcomes with some principles of Open Pedagogy.
The three assignments are scaffolded, each building on the previous one, to produce the overall goal of having students educate others about artworks. There is a combination of group work and individual work throughout and the groups decide what the final product will look like and how it is shared, that is, students decide who they are looking to educate about art and how they will do so.
Students have this freedom to design these aspects of their projects because the final grading rubric will be consistent regardless of the form they choose. These aspects of the assignment’s design aim to embrace the principles of collaboration and flexibility, which are central to Open Pedagogy.
