Finding Educational Resources for Teaching

Open Educational Resources

 

Do you need some new educational resources for your course? Perhaps a video or image?  A new lesson plan?  Maybe a simulation?  Open Education Resources are freely available educational resources that instructors can reuse, remix, revise, and redistribute.  In this workshop you will learn what Open Educational Resources (OER) are, where and how to find them, and how they can best be applied to your teaching practice.  The workshop will begin with clips from a recent summer course design institute where Kevin Corcoran, Executive Director of the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium, described OERs and their benefits to higher education.  Next, we will explore various OER resources available at Quinnipiac, including Arnold Bernhard Library‚Äôs research guide on OERs and the Galaxy content repository.  Finally, ABL librarians and instructional technologists will work with attendees on finding OERs relevant to their discipline and discuss instructional strategies to integrate them into their courses.

 This session is jointly presented by the Arnold Bernhard Library and Academic Technology.  This session will be one hour and attendees should bring a working laptop.
