Event Title: Open Educational Resources (OER): How Can These Free Resources be Used for ESL Teaching and Learning?
Event Type: Online Discussion in the LINCS Community
Date(s): August 25 - September 1, 2015
Greetings, Community Members!
From August 25 - September 1, 2015, special guests Amanda Duffy and Marcela Movit from the American Institute for Research (AIR) will engage in an informative, large-group discussion on open educational resources (OER) and how they may enhance teaching and learning in adult ESL classrooms.
OER help students achieve their learning goals by:
- Providing flexible and accessible supplements to instruction,
- Encouraging lifelong learning habits in students, and
- Helping educators do their jobs better.
The AIR team invites you to share your thoughts and experiences in the Adult English Language Learners, Evidence-Based Professional Development, and Technology and Learning groups. If you are not already a member of one of these groups, please join in order to participate in the conversation. Also, be sure to connect with us on Twitter (@LINCS_ED).
