“Participants in this webinar will learn about Open Education Resources (OERs) and how remix culture can enliven the learning experience. An OER is a resource that is free to revise, remix, and distribute freely to students. The flexible nature of OERs mean that they can be adapted to specific learning objectives and instructor style. The freedom of OERs is enriched when coupled with strong course design and effective use of delivery tools such as a learning management system. Attend this webinar to learn how to use OERs in your teaching and learning.
