Feedback form is now closed.

Locating, assembling or creating, and using OER for the first time can seem intimidating. In this session, we will discuss some simple technologies for finding, adapting, and integrating OER (sources both under public domain sources and under creative commons licenses) into courses to illuminate not only diverse voices from the past but also student reactions to those voices. We will also explore the opportunities for student collaboration in OER creation and publication.

While the presenters will relate experiences with humanities and social sciences, many topics also pertain to natural sciences, business, and engineering. After brief (10-minute) presentations related to the use of OER as a means to give voices to historical sources and students in the classroom, there will be a 10-minute discussion of the successes and challenges that participants have had enabling OER and Open Pedagogy.
The technologies discussed will cover facilitation of discussions (both online and in-class), reactions to texts, images, and videos. Some specific platforms covered include Wordpress, Pressbooks, Omeka, Nota Bene, Perusall, PlayPosit, and Learning Management Systems, such as Canvas and D2L.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Integrate OER into their classes in order to facilitate multi-modal discussions, online and in-person
  • Reflect on the usefulness of OER in surfacing diverse voices, both from within content areas and in discussions about content
  • Evaluate the benefits of student participation in the creation of OER materials
  • Discuss why faculty might wish to co-create OER with students, moving from OER to Open Education
