This event format is an online workshop.*

Course Title Open Educational Resources and Adult Education 
Date of Training Friday, October 24, 2014 
Time: 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM

There are many free, customizable, and editable resources for adult educators and their learners. By using Open Educational Resources (OER) in the classroom and online, teachers and agencies can save money, revise and refresh curriculum and give learners an opportunity to customize their learning. OER are “teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits sharing, accessing, re-purposing—including for commercial purposes—and collaborating with others.” (NETP, 2010, pg. 56). This webinar will introduce participants to the basics of Open Educational Resources; what are they, how can you find them, and considerations for determining their quality for use in your classroom.

Prerequisites: Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills and navigating the Internet.
