Math and Science Adult Educators – Professional Development Opportunity

The OER STEM project, funded by OVAE, is offering a professional development opportunity to adult educators who teach math and science to basic or below postsecondary adult learners. Selected teachers will participate in a 6-month User Group beginning in October 2013 and ending in March 2014.  User Group members will participate in a series of webinars, identify and use math or science-specific open educational resources (OERs), evaluate a minimum of four OERs, and share those high-quality OERs, evaluations and feedback through two online portals (LINCS and OER Commons).
