Student Teacher


As Conewago Valley School District advances its open educational resource (OER) adoption and implementation plan, Leveraging its teaching and learning network and digital library, OER Commons ( launched in 2007.

This is the first of three custom module trainings that will provide participants with an introduction to OER practice and the value add, highlighting successful state and district use cases. Followed by a demonstration and discussion of how to navigate OER Commons and create collaborative workflows to identify resources, assess their quality using rubrics, and organize materials for use. Participants will get an opportunity to practice using OER tools and begin to design their plans for OER implementation, specific to their immediate OER needs. An important outcome for educators will be a shared understanding of OER practice and specific next steps for OER adoption in their work.

We have designed these modules to first spark the learner's interest in the topics covered and then dig deeper into the content through presentations, storytelling, and demonstrations of the tools. We will offer opportunities for learners to practice exploring the resources and tools, and reflect on how they might use them in their work.

Quality of Assessments: Not Applicable (N/A)

Because this is information on OER resources it is very different from a course that would need to include student assessments. It might be helpful to include some type of assessment to gauge prior knowledge of the learners re. OER.

Quality of Instructional and Practice Exercises: Not Applicable (N/A)

This is more an informational resource. There is not a specific skill set other than learning how to access and use OER.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Not Applicable (N/A)

This tool can be used to help students think critically, but the background information on OER does not require critical thinking. It is more of a "how to" resource.
