Can I (Re)Use This? Introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER)

Event Date & Time

  • July 5, 2023
    12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

If you are preparing resources for your teaching, from PowerPoint slides to online modules, chances are you’ll want to incorporate readings, images, video clips, problem sets, or other materials from different sources. This session will focus on the pragmatic elements of reuse and the basics of working with open educational resources that are licensed to allow revision and reuse. Such openly-licensed resources can impact teaching and learning through contextualization, time savings, and lowering student access barriers such as costs.

Join us for this session on working with OER. Bring your questions and explore how the use of OER intersects with effective teaching practices.

Please note that this session is being offered as part of POSE, the Program for Open Scholarship and Education, but is open to all and we hope to see you there!
