Demystifying OER and Bridge to Success

3,080 views

Published on

Open Educational Resources (OERs) have received much attention in the past few years both nationally and internationally—as the innovation du jour for teaching and learning. The presenters will offer an overview of the OER landscape and participants will learn how to find and implement OERs in eLearning courses. The presenters will also discuss opportunities to participate in a Next Gen grant, "Bridge to Success (B2S)" which they received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Presented by Brandon Muramatsu, Patrick McAndrew, Jean Runyon, Shelley Hintz, and Kathy Warner to the Instructional Technology Council Webinar on September 20, 2011.

  13. 13. OER: l’innovation du jour?• What are Open Educational Resources? • We’re going to talk about OER writ large. • We’re not going to bore you with definitions! (Well, we’ll try!) • We’re not going to get all religious about OERs!
  14. 14. OER: l’innovation du jour?• We’d like you to think about OER as an entrée to a conversation • A conversation about teaching, crafting courses, & sharing course materials • A conversation about collaborating with peers and even students• And, you’re probably already using Open Educational Resources! • We’ll find out in a bit…
  15. 15. Do you (or your faculty)…• Talk about courses with peers?• Borrow course materials, teaching techniques, sources?• What about, sharing materials?
  16. 16. OER is all of these things!• At it’s heart, OER is about doing these sorts of things!• And, it’s about encouraging sharing of materials and practices…• And, it’s clearly communicating what others are allowed to do with the materials…
  17. 17. When borrowing resources…• Do you look at the license or terms of use? • Huh? What are those?• Do you provide attribution for those resources? • Attribution is a key aspect of research, it should be for teaching as well!• Why or why not? • <discussion>
  18. 18. What are you allowed to do? What might you allow others?• Instead of “All Rights Reserved” • Can someone else use the materials? • Can someone build upon or modify the materials? • Can they use those materials commercially? • Do they have to share any materials they develop the same way the materials were originally shared?• Do these sound familiar?
  19. 19. Creative Commons Licenses creativecommons.org • A “standard” way providing permissions to your work • The easiest way of communicating your resource is “open”
  20. 20. Have you used Flickr?• Did you know that Flickr allows photo sharers to indicate a license?• And that you can search for Creative Commons licensed photos?

Other professional societies? • Looking through digital repositories? • Google searches?• What what make them easier to use?• How do you incorporate them into your classes? Does “Open” make it easier? • <discussion>
