It’s all Free! Open Education Resources (Free Webinar)
The times, they are a-changin! Find out about resources to support instructors in developing lesson plans and materials. With Open Education Resources (OER), already-created ideas are freely available for use, modification, and distribution. In this webinar, you will learn the basics of what OER are, how to find them, how to interpret the licenses and how to evaluate the resources. Major focus will be on: (1) using OER to improve instruction and (2) contributing to the rapidly growing pool of lessons.
