Join the Design Team on behalf of Adult Learners

Do you or your colleagues want to gain experience designing open courses for adult learners?

Please review and share the information on the MOOC that is starting in September! During this free 12-week service course, you will engage in a real-world authentic instructional design project that centers on the design and development of open educational resources (OER) for adult basic education (ABE). In this project-based course, you will gain instructional design experience while developing instructional materials that will be made available for free to adult educators and learners in the Adult Learning Zone group on OER Commons and Canvas Commons.
