OER Hangout: Searching and Publishing in OER Repositories
April 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
OER Open educational resources (OER) are free to access. Open Creative Commons licenses allow teachers to legally make copies, adapt, and share these resources in order to meet the specific needs of their students. OER repositories make it easier to find, evaluate, and share these resources.
In this discussion-based webinar, gain tips about how to use OER repositories to find high-quality openly licensed educational resources to use in the language classroom, and to share your own creations with other teachers. There will be 20 minutes of presentation time, and the rest of the hour will be dedicated to your questions and to a conversation between participants and panelists.
Melinda Boland directs the development of OER Commons and all partner implementations, including professional learning programs and community building efforts with a team of trainers, project managers, librarians, and designers who together produce all of ISKME’s OER products and services.
Anita Young and Patricia Mulroy work on a team at the World of Learning Institute at Appalachia Intermediate Unit 8, a program that provides face-to-face world language instruction in a virtual environment for students who cannot access them in their school. They have made the open resources they developed for their Spanish and German courses available for other teachers to use on OER Commons.
