D105 - Open Education Resources

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Julie Erickson, Learning Specialist, Technology and Innovation in Education (TIE)
Susan Archambault, Head, Reference & Instruction, Loyola Marymount University
Lindsey McLean, Instructional Design Librarian, Loyola Marymount University

Open education resources (OER) are increasingly in the news as an option for K–12 schools to “save money on textbooks” and recognize teacher innovation and professionalism. Explore the creation of personalized digital textbooks incorporating free OER and review the impact before launching a large-scale OER project. Erikson provides examples of OER textbooks, copyright, platform and content considerations, and resources to incorporate into your own textbook. Get the info and resources you need to have discussions with your stake-holders before launching your own project. Marymount U speakers introduce CORA (Community of Online Research Assignments), a pilot open access educational resource developed for faculty and librarians in higher education. It created a collection of research assignments designed to be extended and enriched by its users—eventually building a community of faculty and librarians sharing their knowledge of pedagogy, information literacy, research, and writing within the landscape of higher education. Hear about Loyola Marymount’s use of Drupal, an open source content management platform; get a live demo of CORA; and hear how the community is using this resource and the lessons learned in developing it.
