Create Using OER
What will we explore in LOER12?
Open Educational Resources (OER) provide a wealth of materials that further develop and enrich an educator’s storehouse of instructional materials. While our access to these resources are at no cost, finding them can prove challenging. Where can we access the most effective and reliable databases? How can we ensure the quality of the OER we are considering for our own instruction?
In this Micro-MOOC, we will
explore the ever-expanding OER landscape and participate in the community's efforts to map the location and ensure the quality of OER.
NOTE NEW TIME:
attend a roundtable webinar on
December 14 at 11:00 AM CST
in which experts
will discuss the Creative Commons License as well as effective practices for finding OER.
explore pedagogical methods for teaching with OER to ensure the intended impact on learners.

Why a Micro-MOOC?
According to Dave Cormier, a MOOC:
"...integrates the connectivity of social networking, the facilitation of an acknowledged expert in a field of study, and a collection of freely accessible online resources. Perhaps most importantly, however, a MOOC builds on the active engagement of several hundred to several thousand “students” who self-organize their participation according to learning goals, prior knowledge and skills, and common interests." -- The
MOOC Model for Digital Practice
by Alexander McAuley, Bonnie Stewart, George Siemens and Dave Cormier.
in this context means that it is
focused on targeted skill building
in the MOOC format. For more on this concept, see the article
Targeted Skill Development: Building Blocks to Better Learning
from the Oct 12 Faculty Focus by Maryellen Weimer, PhD.
