Kaye, thanks so much for announcing this promising Webinar. I'm a huge supporter of using OER in teaching and learning. In fact, I have two invitations open, asking LINCS members in the Reading and Writing, and Diversity and Literacy communities to collaborate in developing an activity to be posted on OER Commons. I hope that some of the wise people who participate in this Webinar will join us in creating an activity together! You will find the invitations posted in those two communities, under the title "Join the OER Team!" Fingers crossed. Leecy
