Picture this: You provide detailed feedback on your students’ assignments, then watch as they flip to their grades and recycle the work on their way out the door. This is the “disposable assignment” - written for a single purpose (i.e. to obtain a grade) and then discarded. In this session, we invite you to learn about how Open Scholarship and Open Pedagogy offer alternative approaches for developing “renewable assignments” that can meaningfully engage students through:
● Creating content for open textbooks
● Publishing their work in open journals
● Developing content for Wikipedia
● And more!
These approaches to teaching and learning can incentivize students to do their best work by broadening their assignment’s audience. At the same time, students can be involved in engaging and meaningful course projects which add their voices to the scholarly conversation and contribute to public knowledge.

In this discussion-based roundtable, we will look at examples of open assignments piloted by SFU and other institutions. We will also discuss opportunities for instructors to partner with SFU Library to support Open Pedagogy and Open Scholarship in the classroom and embrace new forms of learning and assessment beyond the disposable assignment.
