Finding, Using, and Adapting Open Resources – TRU Newsroom

October 14, 2020 at 11:50 am  Education, Kamloops, News

The Open Education movement is based on faculty taking back control of the content delivered in the classroom. Faculty create resources based on their needs and then license them so that others can similarly use, reuse, or adapt them. Creating / using open educational resources (OER), whether big (such as open textbooks or open courses) or small (such as images, videos, or quiz questions), can significantly increase student learning and success.

There are millions of openly licensed resources available that can be used “as is” or modified to better meet your own needs. Whether you’re looking for an open textbook to use or you’d like to use a number of resources to align with your course’s learning outcomes, this session will equip you with tips and best practices on how to find and evaluate existing OER, an overview of Creative Commons licences, suggestions on things to consider when reusing or modifying OER for your classes, and information about what help is available at TRU to support you in integrating OER into your teaching.
