The subject of open educational resources (OER) is becoming more prominent in higher education, especially in times of need to rapidly digitize courses and switch to online teaching and learning. As an instrumental tool in creating innovative and learner-centered resources, OER are an interesting area to explore for UG teachers.

Would you like to try new and interesting things in your teaching? Do you need some inspiration, practical tools and support with redesigning your courses, making them more open and up-to-date?

On 17 November 2020, information specialists from the University of Groningen Library and didactic experts from Education Support & Innovation will host a webinar focused on helping you redesign and enrich your course (in whole or in part) with open materials.

During this interactive webinar, we will work alongside you and provide:

  • Didactic advice
  • Expertise in the area of open education and copyright
  • Tips for finding high-quality open educational resources
  • Help with exploring all the cool things that can be done with reusable and open materials
  • Course redesign tools
  • Platform for discussions
  • Inspiration

Your participation won’t just benefit your own course and development – you will also help us better understand your needs, so we can work on developing new services and infrastructure to make your teaching life easier.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this workshop, you will be able to:

  1. Understand how to use OER, basics of the copyright and open licenses
  2. Search strategically for and evaluate OER most relevant to your subject area
  3. Design appropriate teaching and learning activities using OER

Preparation

In preparation for the webinar, we would like to invite you to complete a short home assignment. We will ask you to share some information about your course and to think about a course element that you would like to redesign by using open educational resources. This assignment will require up to 1 hour of your time and is to be submitted 2 weeks before the webinar. This exercise will be useful for both familiarizing yourselves with open educational resources and getting inspired to (re)design your existing and upcoming courses. Based on your assignment and needs, we will gladly provide you with individual feedback and help.
