What Flavor of OER is Right for Me and How Can I Get Started?

Are you curious about Open Educational Resources (OER)? Not sure what’s involved with adopting, adapting, creating and sharing learning resources–or how to get started? Wondering if OER is a good match for you and your institution? Wonder no more! Come learn about the basics of OER, the current landscape, how to define and develop a right-sized program that is tailored to you and your students or constituents, resources to support that program, and a range of platforms and tools that are available for open publishing. During this interactive workshop you will develop a program plan specific to your needs--which may range from adoption and implementation of a single existing OER to a team effort to create and publish a range of materials, a customized list of available support resources and technologies, and a plan for follow-up assessment and maintenance. Bring your ideas and questions and walk away with a plan.
