Open GLAM for Critical Open Educational Resources: Free Knowledge Pedagogy Via Intercultural Co-Curation

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the US and globally, people have moved even more online. Students and educators—from K-12 to graduate school—followed suit. Meanwhile, galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) shut their doors and tried to amplify virtual offerings to a public seeking entertainment as well as education from home. There is a lot of demand—and a lot of supply—in GLAM-related online educational resources (OER), as compiled by MCN and others. What works best, what is needed, and what will outlive lock-down? These are some of the questions that drive us into the future.

This workshop dives into how GLAM OER can collaborate with disciplines and fields across and beyond academia—from museum studies to geography, digital humanities to international relations, postcolonialism to decolonial epistemology. University faculty, students, and self-educating learners are seeking international arts and culture content that is free from colonial legacies, free from copyright, and free from cost. What role does open GLAM have in these pedagogical needs? What would interactive, engaging platforms look like that fostered intercultural dialogue and co-curation of Creative Commons and public domain arts and cultural content? What curricula are needed to help contextualize this content, and extricate it from Eurocentric taxonomies and appropriative metadata?

Deep Dive sign-ups open Wednesday, September 9. Space is limited and advance registration is required—so mark your calendars! Once sessions are filled, there will be a waitlist and MCN will notify attendees as spots become available.
