The CARLI OER Committee is pleased to offer “Understanding and Promoting Open Educational Resources”, a three-week synchronous and asynchronous course on open educational resources. The course will include live sessions on December 4, 11, and 18, which are all Mondays.
This virtual course is designed to help the novice person learning about open educational resources to apply the information from this program to build their own local programs and workshops. The program is open to all CARLI members.
The virtual program will contain both synchronous (three live 90-minute Zoom sessions) and asynchronous (readings, videos, etc.) to be completed before each live session. The live sessions will include presentations, but the aim of the program planners is that these will incorporate a flipped classroom model to build community among participants as all share and discuss the topics.
What previous course participants said about the course:
“The CARLI OER course is a valuable resource for anyone working in academic institutions. The instructors are very knowledgeable, the learning material is interesting and clear, and the classes are informative and engaging. I came away feeling confident in my understanding of the course topics and motivated to promote OER at my institution.”
“A sound foundation for learning about how to put together an OER initiative.”
“This class brings to light the current textbook environment and how to use your position to promote OER with faculty no matter how invested your institution is in OER.”
“The CARLI course Understanding and Promoting Open Educational Resources is a great opportunity to introduce or refresh your understanding of OER. Interacting with other librarians and hearing about their experiences and OER efforts is encouraging.”
