SSD19: Creating Equitable Classrooms using OER

Hours: 2.75

This workshop will offer a brief overview of open educational resources (OER) and open pedagogical approaches to creating an equitable and learner-centered classroom. In this workshop, participants will deepen their understanding of open copyright and how it differs from fair use and public domain access. Additionally, participants will find and incorporate openly licensed resources to create assignments bridging student connections with course outcomes and their community.

Desktop computers will be utilized in this workshop.

At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:

•Use internet resources to identify open copyright materials for their courses
•Create potential open pedagogy assignments to increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in the classroom
•Apply proper attribution to open copyright material
•Use creative commons licensing to create an open license for original and derivative work
•Apply best practices in accessibility for OER material, including alt text and captions.

Jack O'Grady & Carrie Gits will be co-workshop facilitators:

Jack O'Grady is a long-time faculty member and OER advocate, and the new OER task force lead facilitating OER adoption across ACC. He is returning from a sabbatical where he completed a doctorate centering on OER education in addition to creating an OER eBook with integrated teaching ancillaries for the Biotechnology Program. He is excited to share his experiences with fellow faculty in adopting and adapting OER in the classroom.

Carrie Gits is the HLC Head Librarian and a recent SPARC Open Education Leadership graduate. She has created an extensive OER LibGuide and faculty professional development, and has been a long-time OER advocate and resource for ACC faculty. During the workshop, Carrie will lend her expertise in guiding participants to a deeper understanding of OER and finding resources in their discipline.
