Webinar Resources

On Tuesday, April 18, 2023, the #GoOpen National Network hosted the professional learning webinar titled "Integrating OER into Instructional Initiatives" featuring:

  • Rebecca M. Henderson, Curriculum Services Supervisor, Westmoreland Intermediate Unit, PA
  • Tracy Rains, Virtual Learning Specialist, Appalachia Intermediate Unit, PA
  • Kelly Hammond, OER and Open Pedagogy Adjunct, CUNY School of Professional Studies
  • Amee Evans Godwin, Senior Advisor, ISKME

The speakers represent the #GoOpen community of practice, K-12 Voices for Open, which collaboratively authored a guide for district cohorts to integrate OER into curriculum planning that includes all learners. The guide is designed as a strategic planning tool for district leaders who want to promote the already pedagogically and financially compelling practice of creating or adapting open educational resources (OER) and also helping achieve district goals to serve all students through the lens of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA).
