The subject of open educational resources (OER) is becoming more prominent in higher education, especially in times of transition to Open Science and a need to switch to blended forms of teaching and learning. As an instrumental tool in reusing existing and creating innovative 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 16 June 2022, information specialists from the University of Groningen Library and didactic experts from Education Support & Innovation will host a workshop focused on helping you redesign and enrich your course (in whole or in part) with open materials.

During this workshop, 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.

  1. Understand how to use OER, basics of the copyright and open licenses
