2012 (Round One) Outcomes Posted The inaugural competition for funding sought to promote faculty and staff understanding of how new technologies support pedagogy. The RFP encouraged exploration of emerging and transformative issues with social media sites, Internet search engines, mobile devices, e-books, video course capture and learning management systems. 2013 (Round Two) Currently Underway As a direct result of 2012 IITG efforts, partnerships both internal and external to SUNY are flourishing, providing real opportunity for discipline-based collaboration while building a foundation for future research and communities of practice. In anticipation of Open SUNY, this RFP focuses on exploration of E-textbooks, open education resources (OER), educational gaming, and tools and practices that support online teaching and learning that supports Innovative Instruction SUNY-wide. 2014 (Round Three) Announced May 2014 With the formal launch of Open SUNY in January, this RFP focuses on how online learning, open educational resources, e-textbooks, mobile devices, flipped classrooms, educational gaming, competency-based and experiential learning, prior learning assessment and MOOCs are transforming how education is providing access and engaging students.

Awarded Grant: $60,000 Principal Investigator: Trudi Jacobson, University at Albany Thomas P. Mackey, Empire State College This project merges two innovative and flexible learning models: a metaliteracy Coursera MOOC open to all SUNY students, and its integration with competency-based badging. This unified approach to learning appeals to students and employers alike, and serves as a robust model to advance Open SUNY. Metaliteracy, a critical knowledge set for informed students, employees, and citizens, is leveraged in this project to meet the learning goals of Open SUNY. Being metaliterate means having the ability to successfully consume and create quality information in collaborative, online environments. The co-PIs will assess the effectiveness of this project’s teaching methods by using analytics provided within Coursera. Participants in the Metaliteracy Learning Collaborative will share outcomes with SUNY faculty to develop badging quests in prior learning assessment, experiential learning, and other content areas. The unified metaliteracy MOOC and badging system will provide support for the next revision of SUNY’s Information Management General Education competency.

Awarded Grant: $19,500 Principal Investigator: Rachel Rigolino, SUNY New Paltz This project supports designing and piloting an online site where instructors from across the disciplines can access resources for teaching and writing. A survey of existing repositories such as OER Commons and MERLOT reveals a need for an online site containing instructional material of consistent quality that is dedicated to WAC assignments/goals. If successful, this pilot program would be the first step in developing a robust site housed on the SUNY Learning Commons. This online repository would contain open educational resources focused on writing across the curriculum that would be available both to SUNY and non-SUNY faculty.
