Nimble Open Pedagogy to Connect Classrooms, Scholars, and Projects (OS Café on Open Education)
From Kristopher Meen
Every semester students contribute additional resources and use existing student-produced materials as supplemental readings, revising and updating as necessary. Dr. Goller believes that in courses without textbooks, because of the nature of fast-paced evolving scientific technologies, student scholar co-creators provide much-needed accessible information that others can leverage to understand the powerful applications of modern scientific methods. This is also an opportunity to engage stakeholders and the global campus community. How can we promote openness and use of these resources beyond our niche courses?
Dr. Carlos Goller
I am an Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and teach in the Biotechnology Program (BIT, biotech.ncsu.edu) at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. My research interests include molecular microbiology, metagenomics, high-throughput discovery, epidemiology, history of disease, science education, and outreach activities. I am also interested in teaching with technology and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Importantly, I love co-creating with student scholars and learning together by connecting courses, undergraduate research, and open educational resources.
