Revise and Remix: Tackling The Hard Part Of OER's 'Four R's'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session is aimed at course developers and college faculty charged with the task of taking existing courses and converting them to OER. The presenters will share what they have learned after working for two years on tackling the challenges of finding appropriate materials, making adaptations, and creating new content to fill in gaps, while facing constraints of working within existing programs, syllabi, course requirements, and internal expectations and approval processes.

Assistant Professor and Academic Coordinator, Mercy College
I teach and coordinate the Critical Inquiry and Junior Seminar courses at Mercy College. These courses reinforce and assess skills such as critical thinking, reading, writing, speech, and information literacy. I love creating competency-based OER's and incorporating learning modules, digital stories, ePortfolios, and service-learning into curriculum. I also love old television shows, rock concerts, and saving stray cats.
