Transcript

  • 1. Open Educational Resources Advantages and Challenges Rachel Goon
  • 2. Advantages for students “College Students Spending Time Outside” by York College of PA is licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0 • Free or low-cost materials save students money • All students have access to materials, regardless of socioeconomic status • Online OER learning objects can be more engaging than a textbook • Opportunities for students to participate in creating course materials • Opportunities for students to learn about copyright, idea ownership, and “honorable use” of others’ ideas
  • 3. Advantages for faculty “Faculty member Asma Abbas” by Bard College at Simon’s Rock is licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0 • Opportunities to share our ideas and get feedback from others • Opportunities to rejuvenate our teaching methods by learning from others • It’s easier to teach when all students have the materials!
  • 4. Potential hurdles to clear “Men's 100m Hurdles at the Triton Invitational 2011” by SD Dirk is licensed under CC BY 2.0 • • • • • Quality of materials can vary Some disciplines have more readily-available OERs than others It can be time consuming to find OERs Adapting them for our own use also takes time Not all OER are designed to be printable, and some studies suggest that we understand textual material better on paper than on a screen
