Open Sesame: Using Open Educational Resources (OER) for Teaching and Learning

Register through the Center for Teaching Excellence website.

  • Thursday, March 19, 12:00 - 1:00 pm, TLC 321
  • Thursday, April 2, 4:30 - 5:30 pm, WC (computer room)

Facilitated by Regina Gong and Jim Luke

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use. With the skyrocketing cost of textbooks and other educational materials, OERs are a proven way to minimize or even eliminate these expenses so students can focus more on learning. Faculty may benefit by adopting OERs since it allows them to go beyond the traditional textbook, which in turn encourages pedagogical innovation and creativity. This workshop will discuss the current OER landscape including finding and evaluating OERs, tips on how you can use OER in your classroom, and successful implementation of OERs at LCC and in other community colleges and universities.
