Getting to Know (and Use) OER

Getting to Know (and Use) OER

Getting to Know (and Use) OER
Thursday, March 5th
4:00pm-5:00pm
Cook Library, Room 526

 

As part of Cook Library’s observance of Open Education Week, join librarian Rick Davis for an introductory session on open educational resources (OER). Rick will provide a working definition of OER, distinguishing them from other free (but not open) educational resources and from reduced-cost options like the University Store’s Direct Access and Affordable Course Materials Initiative. He will also discuss the basics of open licenses so that you can be sure your use of OER complies with their terms of use. Finally, he’ll demonstrate how faculty can find relevant OER on some of the best-known and widely used OER repositories and referatories.

Wednesday, March 4th
12:30pm-6:00pm
Cook Library, Room 208

 

 

Join us for a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign that teaches people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia to increase representation of cis and trans women, non-binary people, people of color, and Indigenous people and their artistic work on Wikipedia. Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female; more recent research puts that number at 16% globally and 23% in the United States.

Trainings will begin at 12:30pm, 2pm, and 3:30 PM in Cook Library Room 208
