The Development of Open Education Resources in STEM Courses
Open Education Resources (OERs) are free education materials that can be used in classrooms by instructors and students. There are cost-specific benefits to using these resources in the classroom, since they eliminate high textbook costs. Workshop attendees will learn the various steps needed to successfully design and implement an OER course. These steps include writing learning objectives, creating formative and summative assessments, and aligning assessments with the learning objectives. The interactive workshop will model active learning strategies to encourage in-class discussion, student self-reflection, and the practice of writing learning objectives and assessment questions.
