The City College Advisory Service and Workshop Center for Open Education, located on the main campus of City College in New York City, is a free facility for all participants in the school process--teachers, principals, supervisors, paraprofessionals, parents, and graduate/undergraduate students in the New York City area. It is sponsored by the City College School of Education and receives partial funding from City College, the National Institute of Education, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Affiliated advisors in the schools are subsidized by the Learning Cooperative of the Board of Education of the City of New York and a number of community school boards. The Workshop Center offers curriculur activities in art, language, math, music, movement, science, and social studies; experiences with natural materials; and a shop, darkroom, kiln, kitchen, and reference library. Each month the Center publishes a schedule of workshops, discussions, and film showings led by Workshop Center staff, City College faculty, community persons, and experienced open classroom teachers. Four times a year the Center issues a journal featuring articles by teachers, staff, and other contributors to developments in open education. The Workshop Center was designed as a place in which to browse, to try something new or rethink something not so new, and to share ideas and practices in a relaxed and supportive setting. (Author)
