Using Open Textbook writing to Engage Freshmen and Sophomore Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Date: March 5, 2021

Speakers: Yang Wu (Open Resources Librarian), Anne Grant (Instruction Coordinator), Megan Palmer (Assessment Librarian), Clemson University

The switch to hybrid and online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic has created many difficulties for instructors in directing and motivating students. For freshmen and sophomore students, the sudden change in the mode of instruction has created more emphasis on them to self-learn, something that many are not familiar with. Three librarians at Clemson University have developed an approach to address this problem. Combining open pedagogy and active learning, their teaching strategy asks students to work together to write an open textbook on their class subject. Students write the book through number of scaffolded assignments aimed at making them more self-directed, creative, and confident in learning on their own. This presentation highlights their experiences and insights in applying the approach to STS 1010, a course on information literacy in the fall of 2020.
