Katie Harding is a Teaching & Learning Librarian and liaison to the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science at Dartmouth College. In this role, she works to integrate the Library into campus life through teaching and outreach, supports the development of faculty and librarians as teachers, and coordinates the library’s open education initiatives. She is a member of the Open Dartmouth Working Group which engages, informs, and educates faculty, students, and staff at Dartmouth in areas that include open access, open data, and open education.
In 2019 the Dartmouth College Library will launch a grant initiative to support Dartmouth faculty in their adoption, adaption, and creation of OER. For her capstone project, Katie will be working to establish this grant initiative, developing a plan outlining what kind of support the library and its partners will provide to help faculty to be successful in their OER projects, and creating and implementing a plan to provide education and outreach to faculty and staff about OER.
