Getting Started with Open Educational Resources (OER)

Monday, November 15, 2021 at 9:00am to 10:00am

Virtual Event

Curious about teaching with open educational resources (OER)? Wondering how to get started?

In this J-WEL webinar, designed for faculty just beginning to explore teaching with OER, we’ll cover all the basics: what OER are, why faculty use them, tips for finding them, and how to evaluate them.

We’ll also demystify the Creative Commons license and answer all of your questions about retaining, reusing, and remixing OER. Worcester professor Elizabeth Siler, a highly experienced OER expert (not to mention an enthusiastic one!), will share how she got started with OER, where the journey's taken her, and tips for wayfinding. 

Our session speakers are Sarah Hansen, Senior Manager, Open Educator & Strategic Initiatives at MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW); Geoff Wilson Intellectual Property Manager at MIT Open Learning; and Elizabeth Siler, Professor of Business Administration & Economics at Worcester State University.

This webinar is free and open to the public. Please note that a brief registration is required (takes less than 30 seconds to register).
