Professor Shinta Hernandez, chair of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice, will be presenting as part of the Open Educational Consortium's Open Pedagogy Webinar Series.

Professor Hernandez will present on the Montgomery College United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Open Pedagogy Faculty Fellowship that she and Dr. Michael Mills, vice president of the Office of E-Learning, Innovation, and Teaching Excellence, offered for the first time in Summer 2018. The webinar is scheduled for Friday, March 8 from noon to 12:30 p.m.

During the fellowship, faculty created renewable assignments that required their students to become agents of change in the community. The renewable assignments created by faculty fellows required that students tackle a United Nations Sustainable Development Goal through their open pedagogy coursework. The fellowship required that faculty be grouped into interdisciplinary and intercampus teams so that student impact was maximized. The ultimate purpose of the fellowship was to achieve greater social justice in the community in which the work can be freely shared with the broader community.

There were 15 faculty fellows grouped into seven teams across 12 disciplines and three campuses. The open pedagogy assignments were deployed in 16 different courses and 25 sections across the College. Through thes Fall 2018 fellowship, 571 students were impacted by this groundbreaking and transformative work.
