Webinar: Finding and Using Open Educational Resources (OER) in the Classroom
Date and Time
Looking to switch up your course materials for the coming academic year? Consider using open educational resources (OER)!
OER are educational materials (including textbooks, modules, streaming media, simulations, and much more) that can be an accessible alternative to commercially published textbooks and other course materials. OER are not only free of cost, but they are often editable and adaptable to ensure that you’re able to provide the best curricular content for your course.
Whether you’re looking for an open textbook or you’d like to curate a number of resources to align with your course’s learning outcomes, this workshop will equip you with tips and best practices on how to find and evaluate OER that are appropriate for use in your teaching.
Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of the variety of sources and collections that exist for OER, including examples relevant to courses in business and the social sciences, as well as several tools they can use when evaluating content for quality and relevancy.
This session will be recorded.
