Can I Use This? Finding and Working with Open Educational Resources (OER) – October 30, 2018

Series: Open Education

Event Date & Time

  • October 30, 2018
    9:00 am - 10:30 am

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. There are millions of openly licensed resources, from full courses and textbooks to tests banks and images, that are available for others to freely use. This session will focus on the pragmatic elements of reuse and the basics of working with open educational resources (OER) 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.

Are you interested in learning how to find reusable materials for your teaching? This session is intended to address common questions concerning openly licensed materials for teaching and learning. Some of these questions include:

  • What is meant by Creative Commons?
  • Where do you find open resources?
  • How do you evaluate open resources?
  • What are the key considerations in reusing, reproducing, or modifying these materials?

Participants are invited to bring their questions, needs, and favourite resources.
