This site serves as a resource and interactive space for faculty participating in BMCC’s Teaching on the OpenLab Faculty Learning Community, which is made possible by the BMCC Open Education and Open Knowledge Initiative. This initiative is supported by the CUNY Office of Library Services (OLS) and funded by the New York State Department of Education.

In this learning community, faculty will join a growing movement in open education that embraces teaching in the open. Teaching and learning on open platforms such as the BMCC OpenLab offers liberatory opportunities for both faculty and students in a space that encourages creativity and community. Participants will design and create a WordPress website for one of their courses using the OpenLab, and explore the possibilities for students to co-create learning experiences.
