Started in 2012, Open Education Week is an annual event that aims to raise awareness and highlight open education efforts worldwide. OE Week provides instructors, practitioners and students with an opportunity to gain an understanding of open educational practices (OEP) and be inspired by the wealth of open educational resources (OER) being developed by the global community. OER Week at McMaster is being presented by McMaster University Libraries and the MacPherson Institute.
Interested in incorporating an OER into your course shell this semester? Set aside one afternoon to learn H5P, an easy-to-use open software to create interactive elements for your course. After an overview of H5P options and examples from McMaster instructors and teaching assistants, you’ll have an opportunity to apply what you’ve learned in a work session. Experienced using H5P? Drop-in during this time with any questions you may have!
