Why you don’t want to miss this!

If you are struggling with student motivation or inauthentic assignments, exploring the use of open resources can provide a solution. While using open educational resources (OER) in higher education curriculum has been shown to positively impact student learning, open pedagogy and open syllabi are additional avenues to bring the concept of “openness” to the collegiate classroom. These processes can give students a greater voice in the learning process and more ownership over their learning experiences, providing a better path to student buy-in and greater assignment value.

Additional Detail

Open educational resources (OER) are a crucial resource, but implementation of these resources is often left to faculty members without much institutional direction. Our presenters for this online seminar, Oliver Dreon, PhD, and Nicole Pfannenstiel, both faculty members of Millersville University which has had a significant OER initiative, will guide you implementing these resources into your curriculum while introducing open pedagogy and open syllabi to increase student engagement with course content and help students recognize the value of course assignments.
