Getting Started on Creating Open Educational Resources | OER Workshop Series

Getting Started on Creating 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.

Creating a new OER, either by starting from scratch or by adapting an existing resource, can be a labour intensive process. This session will break down the steps associated with OER creation to give instructors some step-by-step guidance. We will also discuss tools and platforms that are available to instructors for hosting OER materials, and discuss key accessibility and universal design principles.

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

  • Identify the five main steps of the OER creation process
  • Provide examples of tools for creating OER
  • Describe which OER tools/platforms are supported by UCalgary, and which are “DIY”
  • Explain the importance of assessing OERs for accessibility
