Fixing a Hole With Open Educational Resources
January 28 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
January 28-29, 2021 @ 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Hosted by the University and College Division of the Oklahoma Library Association
Description: It’s no secret that publishers place a premium on the cost of textbooks, and students are left in the lurch. As textbook prices increased over time, open educational resources (OER) have filled the need for low‐cost course materials as they are free, open access, and often easy to customize.
Oklahoma Library Association’s University & College Division invites anyone interested in OER for a two‐day virtual workshop. Day 1 will consist of foundational lectures in OER, and Day 2 will feature hands‐on sessions where attendees can get hands-on experiences with OER creation and key tools—and if you’re already comfortable in your knowledge of OER but want hands-on practice, single‐day registration for day 2 will be available! Please see the attached flyer for a full program description.
This workshop is for anyone interested in OER and/or working in education, whether you’re a librarian, faculty member, adjunct instructor, instructional designer, school teacher, or graduate student. We hope you can join us for a fantastic line‐up of experienced OER professionals across Oklahoma.
