Investigating Open Educational Resources

Presented by Jade Burris
Session Type: Practice

Looking for multimedia to use in your classroom? You don’t have to recreate the wheel! Find open educational resources to enhance your content. Open educational resources (OER) are resources available at no cost that can be used for teaching and learning. These materials are typically electronic and are generally released under a Creative Commons (CC) license that supports open use of the content. Participants attending this session will learn how to search for OER and learn about the CC licensing system that regulates how OER materials are used. Examples of OER will be shared. There will also be time during the session to practice searching for content specific OER.
