Thursday, February 24, 2022
Time:
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Location:
Zoom
Cost:
Free

OER are educational materials (like textbooks, streaming media, simulations, and more) that are free of cost and access barriers for learners. hey are also editable and adaptable, meaning that they can be customized to suit your course content. Let’s say that, for many reasons, you want to switch up your materials and use OER in an upcoming course. How can you find high-quality open textbooks and other OER that will work for you and your students? That’s what this workshop will cover! 

Session Outcomes:

Building on our Introduction to Open Educational Resources workshop, participants will learn:

  • Key resources and repositories where OER across a variety of disciplines can be found
  • Strategies and techniques to use in your searching
  • Suggestions and criteria to consider when evaluating resources for quality and relevance
