This workshop introduces the basics of Open Educational Resources (OER) such as renewable assignments and open textbooks and their place in the open ecosystem. You will learn to search for and discover OER relevant to your courses and disciplines. In an open document, we will collaboratively search OER repositories for materials that can be added to Concordia’s OER By Discipline Resource Guide, which you might find useful to your studies. Through collaborative small group discussions and guided practice, you can contribute a tangible benefit for yourself and your fellow students, and leave equipped to advocate more effectively for OER in your classrooms. 

This is a 60-minute workshop, with the option to stay and chat for an extra 30 minutes.

Learning Objectives:

Understand the basics of OER 
Search OER repositories for OER suited to your courses 
Co-adapt Concordia’s OER By Discipline Resource Guide
