This is the second module in our OER Academy that will provide participants with an introduction to OER discovery. 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.
This Open Educational Resource (OER) manual instructs educators on how to begin creating OERs. It includes an overview of OERs, their alignment with UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals, their definition, creation, discovery and evaluation, accessibility, licencing, hosting and production, metadata, and OER hosting and curation.
Open Pedagogy is a collection of open practices in the classroom made possible by replacing commercial textbooks with open educational resources. These emerging practices enabled by open content licensing (and an open mindset) involve students in making decisions about their own learning experiences and contributing directly to global knowledge to impact not only other students but generate renewable value outside of the classroom.
This is a recording of a webinar presented by three faculty members and two students who have participated in open pedagogy projects that were enabled through the adoption of open education resources and open practices. Learn how students working with instructional designers and librarians have begun to help faculty adopt, create and implement open content across their campus.
