Event Description

For students, open educational resources are becoming a core way by which they supplement their coursework.  With the proliferation of open education resources on the web, the practice of finding videos, simulations, test banks, and presentations to make clear complex subjects is simply a part of the pathway a student takes to ensure understanding.  Additionally, when introduced into a course, open education resources, such as open textbooks, make education more financially accessible.

For faculty, OERs offers the opportunity to incorporate a greater range of tools for teaching without the need to develop them from scratch.  These resources can then be modified and adapted to make useful for their own teaching context.  Additionally, open education resources support the greater worldwide education community by sharing teaching work which may not be as visible as other academic engagement activities.

Are you interested in learning how to find, use, and remix open education resources? Would you like to learn more about how to share open education resources back to the education community?

Join us on February 9th, 11:30am-1:00pm for a hands-on exploration of finding, using and remixing open education resources for your teaching. In this workshop we will engage in  some learning challenges” to help us explore the possibilities and approaches for using and re-mixing open learning resources. We’ll discuss how to find open resources and and explore different approaches to modifying and licensing the remixed work for re-use.
