The TELE Collaborative (Center for Faculty Excellence, IC Library, Teaching & Learning with Technology/DIIS) is hosting a series of events during Open Access Week. This is the first of four events.
There is growing interest in addressing access, affordability, and student success through the use of open educational resources (OER). OERs include high-quality teaching and learning materials that have been licensed to be reused and remixed freely. OER can include textbooks, games, simulations, quizzes, video, images, and full courses. OERs can be cost-effective, flexible alternatives to traditional course materials.
Lis Chabot, College Librarian, will provide a brief overview of Open Access and Open Educational Resources. A panel will provide a range of perspectives on and opportunities for OERs, followed by time for Q&A with attendees.
• Jennifer Germann, Associate Professor, Art History, will share her experience in developing a course that uses open educational content in lieu of materials that must be purchased by students
• Mark Fink, Director of Teaching and Learning with Technology, DIIS, will discuss his experience with supporting the development of courses that incorporate OERs
• Abby Juda, Science Librarian, will share information about her collaboration with IC faculty members to identify OER materials in support of a course’s learning outcomes
