This one-day summit will bring together faculty, students, librarians, instructional designers, and administrators from across all of Maryland’s postsecondary institutions to explore the contours of open pedagogy, from philosophical questions it raises about power in the classroom to practical questions about how to jump into the practice. At the heart of the conference is the question: what happens when students and their collaborators—peers, faculty, community members, librarians, and more—drive knowledge creation?

Digital accessibility refers to the intentional design of electronic technologies and materials so that they are usable by all people, including people with disabilities. In the case of our increasingly technology-enhanced courses, digital accessibility means equitable access to educational opportunity.
