Please join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) for a free, open webinar on emerging guidelines for the design and development of open courses to enhance teaching and learning. Open courses are designed and developed collaboratively by faculty and instructional specialists (designers, librarians, technologists) using open educational resources rather than traditional publisher materials to lower costs and improve outcomes for students. Speakers will share the process of designing open courses using competency-based methodology, adaptive learning, and other strategies.
Date: Wed, October 8
Time: 10 am PST, 1:00 pm EST
