Finding Open Educational Resources | OER Workshop Series

Finding Open Educational Resources | OER Workshop Series

When incorporated into your teaching, Open Educational Resources (OERs) decrease financial barriers and enhance student learning and engagement.

Presented in partnership with Libraries and Cultural Resources, the OER Workshop Series provides UCalgary instructors and teaching assistants with a baseline of understanding about what OERs are, how to integrate them into their teaching, and what supports are available at UCalgary for OER adoption, adaptation and creation.

Existing OERs are housed in many different locations, meaning that they can sometimes be difficult to find. In this session, we will provide an overview of how to begin a systematic search for an OER appropriate to your course needs, and outline supports available to instructors for finding and evaluating OER.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Describe key aspects of an OER that should be assessed before use
  • Conduct a preliminary search for OER
  • Identify key search tools for finding OER, openly licensed media, and ancillary content

Facilitators: Kate Cawthorn and Sarah Adams
