Ariana Santiago, open educational resources (OER) coordinator at University of Houston Libraries, will present on the benefits of OER at an Emerging Trends in Educational Technology session on Friday, November 9, 10-11am in Agnes Arnold Hall Room 210. Register
OER refers to teaching and learning resources that are freely available and carry legal permission for open use. With OER, students have access to course materials from the first day of the semester and are more likely to successfully complete the course. This session will provide an introduction to OER with a focus on the Creative Commons licenses that define them so that faculty can find, identify, and provide attribution to OER for use in courses. Information will also be provided on the Alternative Textbook Incentive Program.
Emerging Trends in Educational Technology is a partnership of the Office of the Provost and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.
