Open Educational Resources (OER)

Professional Development

Pre-Recorded Webinars

"In this one-hour interactive workshop, attendees will learn where to find and how to evaluate OER materials based on their needs (textbooks or additional reading materials, images, lessons, and other course materials, etc.). The discussion will include common challenges to incorporating OER into courses, mapping repositories to needs, licensing and copyright, and usability and accessibility."

Mahrya Burnett the Scholarly Communications Librarian from University of Iowa conducts a webinar how to adapt and create your own OER.

"Involving students as content creators can be one way of moving course assessments from disposable to more authentic means of evaluating performance. Moreover, when incorporating public sharing of those resources, faculty and students can be contributing to the proliferation of open educational resources (OERs)! In this unit, we’ll briefly review some of the available examples of open-enabled pedagogy, or pedagogical practices that are transparent, generative, iterative, and only possible through the 5Rs afforded by OERs."
