Founded in 1964, John Jay College of Criminal Justice – a senior college of The City University of New York – has evolved into the preeminent international leader in educating for justice in its many dimensions. The College offers a rich liberal arts and professional curriculum that prepares students to serve the public interest as ethical leaders and engaged citizens. The 2018-2019 academic year is Year 2 of the OER initiative. The CUNY-wide funded grant incentivizes and empowers CUNY faculty to redesign their course materials and pedagogy through the replacement of expensive textbooks with open educational resources. Although the short-term goal is to reduce costs for students, the project also impacts the culture to focus on innovative teaching practices that better connect curriculum and pedagogy to student learning outcomes. The project offers a series of seminars focusing on creating the OER course.
