Open Education Resources – OER – had it’s own week this month! IF you missed it, thankfully there is a website –
and we have some points to ponder from our own resident OER fans – Rachel Goon and Emma Clausen – from the Pierce College Library.
Rachel and Emma joined us on a What Works Wednesday a few weeks ago to talk about OER and how to get started using open resources and materials with your students and in your classes. They shared this slide deck with some great thoughts around what is OER, how to get started and where to find the best resources today. (notice all the images in the deck are OER – free to use with a simple attribution to the artist! Nice!) Check out the link on the last slide for MORE open education resources ideas!
We plan to have Rachel and Emma back again to What Works Wednesday in some format – maybe live and maybe in a Google Hangout or webinar. But in the mean time, don’t hesitate to contact them at the Pierce College Library and get more information on open education resources and how you can start using them in your classes.
Due to popular demand for the resources from our What Works Wednesdays sessions, we’ve added a Canvas space to the CEAL world.
This workspace is a public forum so if you have never, ever ventured into the new Canvas LMS before, don’t fret. You don’t need to login or request an account or anything to access the resources, videos and information we are posting in the Canvas area.
You can access this space in a few different ways:
- Though the link here in this post: CEAL on Canvas
- Through the new link now located at the top of our blog (look for ‘CEAL on Canvas’ )
- Through this link on our CEAL website. Go to the CEAL website
However you get there, visit often! We are updating and adding content all the time.
