The following resources are collected as a part of the OER workshops for Mississippi public college and university participants held January 2016 in Oxford and Jackson, MS.
Workshop participants should bring:
Student learning outcomes for at least one course.
A laptop. You can get by with a tablet, but you will be happier if you bring a laptop. Tablet access to materials is possible but not practical.
Your best work. Many faculty members have augmented or moved away from only using traditional textbooks. You will likely want to incorporate your own assessments, study guides, presentation materials, writing and other materials into OER courses. Make sure you have access to your own materials so you can include them in your material review.
Materials here are available for all participants. Please keep in mind that edits made to any document are visible to all participants.
The video below summarizes the findings of the JISC OER Impact project, which analyzed the link between the value of OER use and its impact on teaching and learning. There is a full research report (Liz Masterman and Joanna Wild, LTG) and a shorter “accessible” report (Dave White and Marion Manton, TALL) available for download here.
