(Jobin, Nicole V - 2021) -- Open Educator Award uri icon



  • Nicole Jobin, a senior instructor in the College of Arts and Sciences, has engaged in numerous open educator groups and initiatives on the CU Boulder campus, including OpenCU OER review workshops, ASSETT’s Special Interest Groups on BuffsCreate and ASSETT’s Innovation Incubator—the Collective to Advance Multimodal Participatory Publishing (CAMPP).

    Jobin says she values the opportunity for students to openly license and publish their intellectual work, and to engage in the co-creation of knowledge. A passionate historian, Jobin finds stories of the past are enriched when students engage with a variety of content and realia, including artifacts, the written record, landscapes, documentaries, maps and photographs. This approach led to in-class collaborations with the University Libraries’ Rare and Distinctive Collections department virtually during the pandemic, which resulted in student-created digital exhibits.
