The MCLI is bringing this awesome OER learnshop to Glendale next week, Friday, April 17, 2015 – 12:30pm to 4:30pm in the Center for Teaching, Learning & Engagement (HT2-139). Registration Form
The purpose of this learnshop is to provide faculty an opportunity to learn about open educational resources (OER). Specifically to determine what OER are, how to find them and use them, how to determine licensing of OER, and how to create and share them.
By the end of the learnshop, participants will be able to:
- Design a plan for incorporating OER materials in a class, curriculum, or college
- Design a plan for creating OER materials and how to appropriately license open materials
- Determine how to gain permission to use a copyrighted work
This is a great opportunity to learn more about OER and earn 4 hours of FPG. Yes, this learnshop has been approved for FPG, and it’s right here on our campus. No excuses.
The learnshop will be facilitated by Matthew Bloom who teaches English at Scottsdale Community College. Matthew received his MA in English with emphasis on research in 2009 from Saint Louis University. For over two years now, Matthew has worked to develop and use open resources in First-Year Composition courses while encouraging faculty to collaborate and share their own materials. After thoroughly researching the groundbreaking field of OER and attending seminars on Creative Commons licensing and copyright, Matthew used a 2013 MCLI Learning Grant to build a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) intended to inspire educators to get comfortable with the basics of open resources.
Join us next Friday for this awesome learnshop. There will be snacks! Please register below as this is a districtwide event and space is limited.
