This is an online opportunity available through Blackboard from 1/29/2018 thru 4/1/2018.
It could take up to 5 hours to complete, but can be done in stages.
The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) is a great way to reduce textbook costs for students and to increase flexibility in the texts used in a course. This is an online, open-access, self-paced workshop, built to demonstrate how to find, adapt, and develop OER in a step-by-step manner. OER elements are openly licensed for reuse, usually through a Creative Commons license, which allows them to be integrated into most instruction. The course is organized into five areas, each of which represents one facet of the world of OER. Participants are encouraged to complete all areas of the workshop by following the suggested course progression, but each area can also be completed individually. This workshop will be offered from late January to early April, so as to allow a community around this workshop’s OER concepts to develop.
Facilitated by Bob Casper and OER Faculty Mentors
