958 views

Published on

Please join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) for a free, open webinar on how the use of OER can support more open pedagogical models. As faculty develop open educational resources (OER), a variety of challenges emerge, including identifying useful content, aligning it with course objectives, and measuring outcomes but opportunities for improvements in student autonomy and success are also possible. Speakers will include college instructors and students sharing how the use of OER can enhance teaching practice and increase student success.

Date: Wed, November 12
Time: 10 am PST, 1:00 pm EST

Featured speakers:

Christie Fierro, Communications Instructor, Tacoma Community College will share how she involves students in selecting and creating supplementary open content and in creating meaningful assessments of their learning.

Brent Riffel, History Instructor, College of the Canyons will examine the process of developing OER, and discuss best practices for implementing it in the classroom in a manner that enhances student success.

James Glapa-Grossklag, Dean of Educational Technology, Learning Resources and Distance Learning, College of the Canyons and CCCOER Advisory President will facilitate the discussion.

    35. 35. • The Pros and Cons of OER • Engaging Students with OER • Identifying OER Texts • Useful Resources • Lessons Learned • Closing Thoughts/ Looking Ahead Objectives
    36. 36. • Expanded Access (Students can learn anywhere around the world, around the clock) • Scalability (possibility of wide distribution) • Enhancement of existing class materials (with OER, faculty can reach various intelligences) • Cost (if not free, then often substantially reduced) • Ongoing Improvements (Through constant sharing and collaboration, OER is never static, and it’s getting better all the time!) OER Pros
    37. 37. OER Cons • Fatigue (It’s hard to sustain OER since faculty have few incentives to update materials) • Quality Control (Many resources may be of dubious quality and accuracy) • Access barriers (Significant roadblocks remain in terms of distributing material that is culturally relevant and accessible to all types of learners.) • Technology concerns (OER generally require that students be versed in basic software knowledge. Returning students may be daunted by the idea of replacing the traditional text with something “high-tech”)
    38. 38. Engaging Students with OER As instructors, we’re competing for our students’ time, so developing engaging course material is essential.
    39. 39. This is especially true when we consider that students often multitask when working on class material.
    40. 40. In terms of identifying valuable OER texts, the same rules apply as when selecting a traditional set of readings: • Cost • Course Alignment • Reading Level • Is the material engaging, value-added material? One more thought . . . It’s been useful to think of a text as not only a book, but also a narrative that can be delivered in virtually any medium Identifying OER Texts
    41. 41. This OER text served as the template from which I’ve developed readings for my courses. I thought this would be plug-and-play. A year later, I’m still tinkering with this text to fit my students’ reading comprehension levels.
    42. 42. History Instructors have a lot of options for open source primary documents that can often be woven into the narrative you’re building from secondary material.
    43. 43. Lessons Learned •The Wealth of OER is daunting - collaboration is key to making sense of it all (reaching out to colleagues was highly beneficial) •Process is often as important than Product (Developing OER is an ongoing effort) •Texts aren’t the core of the course. Without realizing it, I was already mixing and matching for years to adapt to student needs
    44. 44. Another early lesson learned . . . a flipped classroom that assigns lengthy open source videos isn’t likely to be very engaging. Note the length
    45. 45. Lots of good material here, but I consider this to be an a la carte menu, as almost all OER has to be tailored to fit your course. The lesson learned here was that one size does not fit all.
    46. 46. YouTube is mostly useless for my video needs, primarily because of captioning issues and lack of content quality. Video sites like IntelecomOnline require a license, but offer high-resolution material at a reasonable price.
    47. 47. Keeping current is key. . . There is a mountain of amazing new podcast material available every week, usually via iTunes, and students can access them via their mobile phones. Note the length, however!
    48. 48. Lecture capture has come a long way, including several free options that allow for a variety of formatting options. This is where my “flipping” and online instruction efforts are headed. This one is free, but clunky. My college has excellent, free lecture capture
    49. 49. Another lesson learned : Look for the logo! It’s common knowledge for most of us by now, but still worth repeating: Because OER are remixed and reused, shared and re-shared, standard Fair Use protections don’t apply.
    50. 50. One more lesson: I’m not a technophobe, but I’m not Steve Jobs either. Asking for technical support almost always yields dividends.
    51. 51. Closing Thoughts/ Looking Ahead Closing Ahead/ Looking A Those of us who see the value of OER might consider evangelizing to our peers.
