More Than a Textbook: Using Open Pedagogy to Unlock the Potential of Open Education
During this three hour workshop, Mr. Cross will discuss how open educational resources (OER) are more than free textbooks - they empower instructors to fundamentally transform the way they teach by moving beyond a static, commercial resource. By removing legal and technical barriers, OER enable new types of teaching and learning that do things a traditional textbook never could. Join us for a hands-on lunch and learn session where you will learn and practice strategies for open pedagogy that is more engaging, more equitable, and makes a difference in the real world.
Lunch will be provided for attendees.
This workshop will be presented on Tuesday, March 19th from 11am – 2pm in Collier Library Classroom 111
