The UT Libraries and COERLL are happy to announce an open educational resources (OER) workshop for instructors at UT. If you are interested in learning more about how you can incorporate OERs into your class, this would be a great place to get started.
Title: Incorporating OER in Courses
Description: Is there a specific part of your syllabus you’d like to change? Are you interested in providing your students with openly available course materials? If so, please join us on August 20th for a half-day workshop on open educational resources (OER). We’ll be talking about where you can find OER, how to interpret reuse options on OER, and how to remix OER materials with existing content you may have. This workshop is intended for those who are teaching (whether graduate students, adjuncts or full-time faculty) and who are relatively new to OER. We welcome anyone interested in being more open in their classes, but activities will focus on swapping out specific pieces of a syllabus or incorporating supplemental materials, rather than replacing an entire course curriculum. We are limiting enrollment to 25 people to allow for meaningful hands-on activities. Lunch will be provided. To register for the class, please use this link.
When: Tuesday, August 20th, from 9:00-1:00 in PCL Learning Lab 4
