June 8: Designing for Open Pedagogy with CCCOER


Published on

Please join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) for a free and open webinar on Designing for Open Pedagogy. Open Pedagogy was first introduced by Lumen Learning co-founder David Wiley, as a way to capture how the use of OER can change educational practices. He relates that using OER in the same way as traditional textbooks is like driving an airplane down the road – it is missing out on what open can provide for student and teacher collaboration, engagement, and learning.
When: June 8, 10amPST/1pmEST

We will hear from two professors who have not only adopted OER but have redesigned their courses with the principles of open pedagogy.  Although reduced cost is what originally attracted them to using OER, involving their students in creating and evaluating OER course materials has significantly increased student engagement and critical thinking and their courses are continually being updated and improved as a result.
Featured Speakers:
• Suzanne Wakim, Biology Faculty Butte College, OER Coordinator
Will share her open course design strategy where students in subsequent semesters build on the work of those before them to create an open textbook and ancillary material. Students discuss and decide on how best to present material in the book, what applications are relevant for each topic, and what materials can help other students learn the course content.

• Mike Elmore, Political Science Faculty, Tacoma Community College
Will share how he has engaged students in collaborative writing of an Introduction to Political Science open textbook. His students report that writing assignments take on new meaning when they realize that other people are going to read their work. Not just repeating what they have read or heard in class, they compare their understanding with their peers and collaborate to present their ideas in the best way possible.

No pre-registration is necessary.  Please use the link below on the day of the webinar to login and listen.
