Description Speaker(s)
Accessible, adaptable, free, high-quality, empowering, relevant these attributes are routinely used to describe Open Educational Resources (OER). OER are teaching and learning resources that are provided to students and educators free of charge. While adoption of OER is actively encouraged and increasingly widespread, practical steps for using them are scarce. Some important questions that educators should be asking:

This webinar will review the origins and status of several OER initiatives, with a focus on resources distributed via HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education. The goal of the project is to provide high-quality, multimedia content on general education subjects to high school and college students free of charge. Several case studies will be presented about the uses and impacts of OER in online and blended classrooms. Participants will also learn about the state of the field, specific pedagogical models, and technical contexts for better leveraging the qualities of OER and evaluating their potential impacts.

Participants will immediately be able to apply their improved understanding of OER to better discover relevant OER, utilize OER for their own needs, and consider how to work on OER-related initiatives.
