The What, Why, and How of Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Educational Resources (OER) are free, openly licensed, high quality tools that allow users to retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute them for educational purposes. In this course participants will:

  • Build an understanding of OERs.  
  • Discover ways to use OER to differentiate instruction.
  • Learn where to find free image and audio resources, online books, videos, audiobooks, interactive simulations, game based learning, lesson plans, textbooks, online courses, and much more.
  • Explore how to use OER to develop or enhance a unit, lesson, or project to meet the diverse needs of your learners.
  • Share resources and collaborate across geographic boundaries to ensure learners have equitable access to up-to-date and innovative materials.

Participants leave with an authentic lesson, unit, or project that uses an OER to enhance student learning. Participants also develop a plan for creating an OER that fills an unmet need in their professional practice.

Course Outcomes:

1.  Examine the global initiative for the development and use of open educational resources.
2.  Explore a variety of free digital libraries, media resources, professional networks, games, simulations, and apps for learning.
3.  Discover tools that enhance students’ knowledge, skills, and dispositions for little to no cost.
4.  Create a lesson, unit, or project embedding the use of open educational resources.
