SPE 100 | Fundamentals of Public Speaking | Course Hub

SPE 100 | Fundamentals of Public Speaking | Course Hub

Speech 100 is a required course for most BMCC students, the aim of the course is to develop effective skills in speech communication. This course hub was developed as an OER (Open Educational Resource) for faculty to utilize in the hopes that by offering a central resource and an open place where colleagues could collaborate, we could increase access to higher education and cultivate a community of democracy and diversity. We all know the tremendous benefits that using OER (Open Educational Resources) provide to our students. At BMCC alone it is estimated that students have saved $6 million! Besides the obvious financial benefit to our students, using OER materials has contributed to a culture of equity on campus by providing access to information. It is our hope that beyond the financial incentives, faculty can work together and use OER to pursue Open Pedagogy. According to DeRosa and Jhangiani, open pedagogy is “a site of praxis, a place where theories about learning, teaching, technology, and social justice enter into a conversation with each other and inform the development of educational practices and structures.” Using Open Pedagogy will allow us “to build a more empowering, collaborative, and just architecture for learning.” By embracing OER we are reimagining our vision of higher education and recognizing that we can transform our pedagogy to be learner-centered and thus much more beneficial and accessible to our students.

Interactive Lessons of Critical Issues in Justice: OER Creation Project | BMCC Criminal Justice Prog

Interactive Lessons of Critical Issues in Justice: OER Creation Project | BMCC Criminal Justice Prog

The BMCC Criminal Justice Program has approximately 2,500 students majoring in the discipline. Criminal justice majors are required to complete the course, Criminal Justice and the Urban Community, CRJ 204, to earn the Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree. Historically, the CRJ Program offered on average seven (7) sections designated as OER/Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC). Approximately 27 sections of CRJ 204 are offered, annually (Spring-15, Summer-3, Fall-9). On average, 400 students enroll in these sections each semester and more than 800 students per academic year. CRJ 204 students apply the culmination of their learning, knowledge, and skills from their social science courses by critically analyzing complex, yet culturally relevant, social issues and conduct an original research study. To note, the interactive lessons inclusive of the proposed project are appropriate for implementation in other CRJ and social science courses.
