Open Education Week: Finding and Using Open Educational Resources
March 8 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmfree
Whether adapting an existing Open Educational Resources (OER), transitioning your course materials into the Open, or creating an OER from scratch, you will likely be using materials created by others.
Because Open doesn’t just apply to the finished resource, but rather all of the elements within the resource, it is important to ensure that everything you include in your OER respects licensing requirements.
In this session, we will walk you through some strategies for finding open content to adapt or include within your learning resources, as well as best practices for attribution. We will also provide guidance for developing your own search plan and documentation, including a workflow and templates for curating resource details.
This session will cover:
- Identifying open educational resource repositories and online spaces for finding content
- Developing a search plan for finding resources across platforms
- Developing a workflow for curating resource details for use in an OER project
