Finding and Using Open Education Resources
Whether adapting an existing OER, transitioning your course materials into the Open, or creating an OER from scratch, you will likely be using materials created by others. Because Open doesn't just apply to the finished resource but all of the elements within the resource, it is important to ensure that everything you include in your OER respects licensing requirements. In this session, we will walk you through some strategies for finding open content to adapt or include within your learning resources, as well as best practices for attribution. We will also provide you with guidance for developing your own search plan and documentation, including a workflow and templates for curating resource details.
This session will cover:
- Identifying open educational resource repositories and online spaces for finding content
- Developing a search plan for finding resources across platforms
- Developing a workflow for curating resource details for use in an open educational resource project
If you have any questions, concerns, or accessibility needs please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Open scholarship, which encompasses open science, open access, open data, open education, and all other forms of openness in the scholarly and research environment, is transforming how knowledge is created and shared.
Join us for webinars and presentations exploring the practice of open scholarship – from new tools that can increase the reproducibility of research, to new pedagogies that become possible when students and faculty become co-creators engaged in generative knowledge creation. Hear from colleagues who are incorporating “openness” in innovative ways to enhance teaching, research, and public impact.
