Adopting OER: The Why, What, and How of Open Educational Resources
About the Event
Wondering why and how to integrate open educational resources (OER) in your classroom? Want to find out more about current OER-related initiatives here at SFU ?
In this workshop, we will discuss the concepts of Open Education and Open Educational Resources and how they impact quality in education. We'll be looking at how to adopt open textbooks from the BCcampus Open Textbook collection to assign to your class. We will look at issues of quality, pedagogy and impact on students. You will also learn about a variety of OER repositories where you can find open resources to complement your teaching practice and hear from SFU faculty, students and staff currently working on OER-related initiatives.
