In this episode, Dr. Amy Nusbaum shares projects she led to leverage the permissions of open licenses and adapt an introduction to psychology open textbook to make it more inclusive. In one project, psychology students provided suggestions on how the textbook could better fit their local context. In the other, Amy leveraged open tools to crowd-source the evaluation of the textbook through the lens of diversity, representation, and inclusion.
We talk about open pedagogy, the importance of support, collaboration, and funding, and the real impact that small changes can have.
