Students as Editors: Curating and Glossing an Open Anthology of Transatlantic Literature
Open educational resources create opportunities for undergraduates to access and interact with their course readings. The rights that OERs allow let students participate in the creation of new open digital scholarly editions in ways that were previously unavailable to them. In “Premodern Worlds,” a literature course at Penn State Abington, a Renaissance Literature professor and a Librarian who specializes in OER teamed up to transform a traditional literature course with open pedagogical approaches and open educational resources. In this paper, we will talk about how we piloted a multi-year student-created open textbook project by rethinking what coursework can be and what the affordances are when students become creators rather than consumers of literary scholarship. We will describe the pedagogical challenges of building a project-based open assignment that meets the requirements of the university curricula, the project management design, the experience of working with students as collaborators, and the considerations around permissions, copyright, and student labor rights.
