Introduction to OER- October 20, 2020 at 2 pm (PASCAL)

With both the economic and in-person effects that COVID-19 has had on higher education, now is a good time to attend our Introduction to OER webinar and learn about the different ways that open educational resources (OER) can help both you and your students get the most out of your class. OER can give you the freedom to include the material you believe is most important for your students to know and understand. It also provides your students with the ability to have the textbook and other course materials on day one of the class, making sure that no one is trying to play catch-up once their financial aid has arrived. Register for this event here.

Teaching with Open Pedagogy (PASCAL)

October 22, 2020 at 1 pm

Did you know that OER is not simply educational resources? It is also technology to create information, and OER is connected to Open Pedagogy, an educational movement that seeks to motivate students by engaging them to publish information on the web. Do you know that instead of having students write a research paper you can organize them to write an OER textbook on the course subject as a group? Designed for undergraduate students in research-focused courses, this activity challenges them to practice their research skills, learn new skills such as writing for a public audience, professional editing, peer-reviewing the work of classmates, understanding copyright, and will allow students to publish a work that they can cite on their CVs.  Register for this event here.
