What's all the buzz about OERs and STEM

Hi all, 

As we are approaching the new academic year, I invite you to explore the OER STEM Project. Check out the section on Ways to Use OER for STEM Instruction. The topics found in OERS can be suited for science instruction and can help fill the gap between existing materials and needed materials. 

Do you use OERs in your science classroom? If so, what do you use and how do you integrate them into your instruction? If you have not yet used OERs, what support do you need to begin using them? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Global STEMx Conference Starts Today (Sept 19-21)

Original post by Dahlia


We invite you to join us at the Global STEMx conference (, which is a massively open online conference for educators focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and more. The conference is being held over the next three days, September 19-21, 2013, and is free to attend. The Open Education Resources to Support Adult STEM Teaching and Learning project will host two presentations during this virtual conference:

Teaching science in adult education

There are over four hundred members of this discussion group.  It would be very helpful to know the range of science teaching practices that our programs and interests represent. 

How do YOU address issues of teaching science in adult education programs?    Do you have a dedicated time/day in which science is taught?  Does your program offer a specific "science class"?  Do learners participate in hands-on experiments?  If you are an instructor, do you use individualized computer-based program learning? Do you use Internet-based resources (Open Education Resources)? 

STEM and Open Education Resources Awareness Discussion

Welcome to this weeklong discussion about how to improve awareness of and access to OERs (Open Education Resources) for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) instruction. OERs are digital teaching and learning materials of all types, including text, videos, games, and assessments that are freely available and adaptable for use in any educational setting for all types of learners.
