Open pedagogy may be understood as an access-oriented commitment to learner-driven education. It is a process of using tools for learning and designing architectures for learning that enable students to shape the public knowledge commons of which they are a part (DeRosa & Jhangiani, 2018). One particular form of open pedagogy that is growing in popularity is known as a renewable assignment. Renewable assignments (also known as non-disposable assignments) involve students creating resources as part of their coursework that add value to the world, live beyond of the boundaries and beyond the duration of the course, and are likely to have a lasting impact (e.g., Seraphin et al., 2019). This often involves students creating, adapting, updating, curating, or annotating open educational resources (OER).

Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) in British Columbia, Canada and Montgomery College (MC) in Maryland, USA have launched a joint Open Pedagogy Fellowship focused on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The fellowship involves selected faculty across the two institutions working collaboratively across boundaries and academic disciplines to design renewable assignments that serve progress towards specific SDGs. The renewable assignments designed are being deployed in courses taught by the participating faculty over the the 2019-20 academic year to help students at both institutions become agents of change in their own communities. This presentation will share the goals and mechanics of this international partnership along with brief examples of the assignments designed by the inaugural cohort, which includes three teams of faculty from: 1) Urban Ecosystems, Sustainable Horticulture, and Anthropology, 2) Marketing, Educational Studies, and Math, and 3) English and Math. The benefits and challenges of this project will be shared, along with a few lessons learned and the next steps for this fellowship program.
