Session 12: Curriculum Wrap-Up (July 2022 M-2 Cohort)

Hello, @July22-M-2-Cohort! Here are our slides and handout for Wednesday’s session wrapping up Phase 1 of the TSP. During part of that session, we’ll be doing a final reflection activity. I’ll explain more during the session, but here are the instructions, and you’re certainly free to post those in between now and then, too:

Please find a picture that helps you articulate your learning experience around DEI in Phase 1. Post the picture to the Session 12 thread in the Rebus Forum.


  1. Visit one of the suggested image repositories:
  1. Find and download a picture that represents your learning experience around DEI in Phase 1.
  2. Upload the picture as a reply to this Session 12 thread on the Rebus Forum.
  3. Add a title and a brief description that tells us why you chose that image.
  4. Review others’ posts and comment if you feel compelled.

So sorry to skip again. I’m still playing catch up and spending the time to prepare a lesson for tomorrow for the course that I am doing the OER for.

I absolutely understand, @msaadi ! Spend the time you need to get done what you need for class. If later this week you wouldn’t mind taking this survey, that would awesome, thank you: TSP Evaluation: Wrap Up Phase 1

Congratulations, @July22-M-2-Cohort ! We have now hit a major milestone in TSP: This is week 12 and with that, we have completed Phase 1! We hope that as we worked through our intensive sessions in the last 12 weeks with you, the curriculum has helped you gain clarity on what open publishing entails and all the innovative possibilities it holds for your teaching practice. That being said, there’s still plenty to explore and learn over the coming 9 months as a community of practice, as we move into Phase 2 of the program.

Here’s today’s session chat transcript. This session saw us do a few different things. We revisited the key takeaways of TSP Phase 1, created spaces for reflection, clarified expectations for Phase 2, and did some goal setting work.

The first part of our session was dedicated to wrapping up Phase 1. I provided a brief recap of the past 12 weeks, before I asked everyone to complete an evaluation. Those of you who missed the session, please kindly submit your feedback via the anonymous survey below [it takes about 10-15 min. to complete]:

In the second part of our session, we looked ahead to Phase 2 of the Textbook Success Program and discussed the following items (alternating between brief input from me and activities done by the participants):

  • I shared what to expect from our monthly sessions going forward and asked everybody present to agree to the expectations (See Slide 12 in our slide deck).
  • I laid out how we can stay in touch asynchronously in between meetings (See Slide 13)
  • The teams started discussing their project-specific goals for Phase 2 and consolidated their project timelines. Access our cohort specific folders for the template guiding this activity here: Cohorts Goals and Timeline Folder - Google Drive . As the instructions on the template indicate, please make a copy of the template for your team (if you haven’t already) in the June 2022 cohort folder. During our first Phase 2 monthly session, each team will have a few minutes to share the highlights of what they’ve decided upon in this document.
  • We did a final reflection activity where we asked cohort members to reflect on their DEI learning in to the program and upload an image that best represents this in the forum. If you were absent, please complete this activity as outlined in the first post of this Session 12 thread. And thank you to all those who shared in-session. Lots of great responses!

It’s been wonderful working with you in the last 12 weeks, and l look forward to supporting you going forward as well! Please let me know if you have any questions. I will be in touch soon as we schedule Phase 2. As soon as we’ve landed on a time, you’ll receive calendar invitations for our remaining sessions. Thanks and take care!
