Do you want to engage your students with hands-on projects; provide a global learning experience on your home campus; or generate a deeper understanding of the craft and culture of other societies, in order to enrich the classroom, as well as contribute to global citizenry?
This project aimed to develop a website dedicated to Asian art techniques. During the grant period of 2016-2017, a website called “Bamboo Canvas” was successfully developed at Fashion Institute of Technology, and it was offered to visitors at Stony Brook University's Charles B. Wang Center and SUNY Old Westbury's Amelie A. Wallace Gallery using hand-held devices or interactive monitors. The website increased diversity and access to a limited source of materials, demonstrating diverse techniques of art and craft in East Asia. It acts as an egalitarian and affordable way of providing a globalized learning environment and creating a curriculum for diversity. The website also increased connectivity among SUNY campuses and local art museums through use at conferences and exhibitions. Students who participated in this project benefitted from applied learning by utilizing their skills acquired in the program of Art History and Museum Professions at FIT and by pursuing career success in galleries. Some of them got a full-time job as a result of their experience with this project. Overall, Bamboo Canvas has led to improved student learning ability and performance.
A Three-Pronged Course Redesign Program to Incorporate OERs into Online Classes: Instruction, Interaction, Incentive

Lowering student textbook expenses to engage and retain diverse online learners by providing course redesign supports, financial incentives, and a community of practice for faculty who wish to adopt open educational resources (OERs) in their online curricula.
Our program allowed for the adoption and remixing of OERs across 8 courses. Through the adoption process, instructors dropped costly textbooks, saving each student an average of $124 per course. This resulted in a preliminary potential savings of $30,320 for the Fall 2018 semester. The project supported course access, affordability, and choice. For example the OERs allow for immediate access to the content, cost savings for the students, and choice for students (they can decide if they want a printed version of OER at low-cost). Student achievement is to be determined, although OERs are supported by research in terms of student learning outcomes.

The project aims to develop a workshop with experts of Asian art techniques along with a website dedicated for it. During the grant period of 2016-2017, a website with video links, podcasts, online lectures, or database of practitioners is developed at Fashion Institute of Technology and offered for visitors at Stony Brook University's Charles B. Wang Center and SUNY Old Westbury's Amelie A. Wallace Gallery using hand-held devices or interactive monitors.
A website called “Bamboo Canvas” was successfully developed at Fashion Institute of Technology, and it was offered to many students using hand-held devices or interactive monitors. The website increased diversity and access to a limited source of materials, demonstrating diverse techniques of art and craft in East Asia.

Problem-based learning is an effective, student-centered approach in which students learn higher-order thinking skills and integrative strategies by solving real-world challenges.This pilot project, funded by SUNY IITG in 2015, is in the process of developing best-practice models and pedagogically sound materials for survey and topic-based music courses that integrates general education content while encouraging students to think creatively and develop flexible solutions to large-scale issues and problems – skills essential for success in the 21st century

This project will survey the SUNY environment to create a network of those involved in scholarly communication. The goal is to create closer alignment and deeper partnerships for librarians and faculty in pursuing scholarly research, grants and publication.
The study provides insight into the way in which cultural diversity affects instructional practices of college instructors, and how to incorporate diversity into instructional strategies to help diverse students succeed. This study opens the door for additional research on instructors’ perspectives and understandings of cultural diversity to help them facilitate cultural response pedagogy to support diverse learners in online learning environments. At a broader level, the study provides an opportunity for instructors who teach online courses to design and implement collaborative learning activities to help diverse students succeed in online learning environments.

There will be three major areas of exploration within this project: 1. Create a faculty course supports team and community of practice for OER adoption and development. 2. Create and develop a digital publishing and learning platform to curate and support this OER content which is openly licensed and may be reused, remixed, and adopted into future courses. 3. Develop a sustainable service and business model for OER content creation, curation, and hosting through Open SUNY Textbooks.

Creation of a MOOC to guide creation of all educational content to be fully accessible and ADA compliant.
The course provided training on creating and facilitating fully accessible educational experiences to students. Educators who completed the training should be able to create and revise courses, websites, and other educational materials with all students in mind, regardless of their ability or disability levels. As a result, the hope is to decrease risks of possible student drop-out for the reasons of inability to comprehend the material or complete required assessments.
