Open Educational Resources (OERs) are free, online materials that faculty can incorporate into their classrooms. They can range in size from entire courses, to discrete modules, to single assignments, based upon the needs of the faculty.
Join us on Friday, November 20, 2015 from 12:00 - 12:50 PM in the Brighton Campus Teaching and Creativity Center (12-201) to learn how three innovative faculty members, Renee Dimino (ESOL/TRS), Paul Seeburger (Mathematics), and Terry Shamblin (ESOL/TRS), have used OERs to replace textbooks in some of their courses. Each faculty member will explain his or her individual challenges and successes identifying, modifying, and incorporating OERs into his or her classroom. Library director Mark McBride will also be in attendance to explain the possible role of the library in facilitating the addition of OERs into your classroom.
This event is co-sponsored by the Faculty Senate Professional Development Committee and the Teaching and Creativity Center.
