More Than a Textbook: Using Open Pedagogy to Unlock the Potential of Open Education

More Than a Textbook: Using Open Pedagogy to Unlock the Potential of Open Education

 

Join us at Collier Library for a three hour OER workshop with Will Cross, Director of the Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center at North Carolina State University.  Lunch will be provided.

Mr. Cross will discuss how open educational resources (OER) are more than free textbooks - they empower instructors to fundamentally transform the way they teach by moving beyond a static, commercial resource. By removing legal and technical barriers, OER enable new types of teaching and learning that do things a traditional textbook never could. Join us for a hands-on lunch and learn session where you will learn and practice strategies for open pedagogy that is more engaging, more equitable, and makes a difference in the real world.
