E105 - Future-Ready OER: Trends & Strategies

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Dr. Cynthia Jimes, Director, Research and Learning, Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education

The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), in collaboration with Florida State University, is conducting a 2-year study to explore the role of school librarians in advancing the use of open educational resources (OER) for teaching and learning. Funded by the IMLS, the study seeks to document school librarians’ current digital and OER curation practices and to develop a framework and a set of practical recommendations for advancing open digital resource collections for the benefit of students, educators, and communities. After introducing the what, why, and how of OER, the session presents the digital curation habits that are emerging through the study’s interviews with school librarians across the U.S, and discusses the implications of integrating OER into the everyday curation practice of school librarians.
