I am writing here as part of an assignment in a LINCS course. The question is, "What impact could OER have on my teaching and what could I license."
First, I use OER regularly in my classroom and I suggest OER regularly to teacher I collaborate with or help train. In fact, we are working with a group of people who are building a giant Facebook data center. Workers from several different contracting companies want English language classes that include work-related vocabulary. We have found OER that have materials directly related to a variety of fields including the ones we are working with.
For my classroom, I use mobile-friendly free resources to increase my students' access to learning materials.
As far a licensing goes, I did a series of webinars this spring for English Language Learner instructors on implementing online learning tools into their curriculum.
As this was all original material developed by my partner and me, it might be a good idea to license it. I intend to talk to my partner about it before we begin our fall series.
