Events and Workshops for Spring 2020

January 9, 2020

Welcome to the Spring 2020 semester, OER Trailblazers and others!

This semester, in addition to our regular OER consultations, department presentations, and private training available, the Open & Affordable Education Committee will also be hosting a couple of workshops that may be of interest to you through the University Library and CELT:

Free Textbooks and More: Open Educational Resources (OER) panel and workshop

Wednesday, 05 Feb 2020, 12:10 to 1:30 pm (2030 Morrill Hall)

Join us for a panel discussion on the impact of free, openly licensed course materials in the classroom. In this 2-part event, a panel of faculty and students will begin by sharing their experiences using OER in the classroom. Following the panel, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a workshop to learn more about finding and evaluating open resources for your course.

Copyright in the Classroom
