Convention Registrants: New Workshop Offering

Dear Michael Barbour,

David Wiley, Brigham Young University is offering a workshop title, SIG OpenEd: An Introduction to Open Educational Resources for Instructional Designers. This workshop will held Monday 10/17/16 – 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM and is supported by a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. There is no charge to sign up but the workshop is limited to 40 registrants.

04-W1: SIG OpenEd: An Introduction to Open Educational Resources for Instructional Designers

Because of their unique copyright licensing, Open Educational Resources (OER) enable a range of pedagogical and assessment practices that are impossible when using traditionally copyrighted publisher materials. Join us as we launch a new special interest group on open education and its implications for instructional design and instructional designers. This workshop will include clear definitions, a review of empirical research on the impacts of OER adoption, how to find OER, how to collaborate with your library in supporting faculty use of OER, and examples of innovative pedagogical and assessment practices enabled by OER. The SIG will work actively throughout the year supporting instructional designers in their use of OER thanks to a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.


To register for this workshop, select the ‘Add Workshops, Meal Events, Printed Program, or Proceedings‘ link from http://www.aect.org/events/registration/confirm.asp?clientid=27715.

See you in Las Vegas!
