Education is currently facing a tremendous challenge with the shift of teaching and learning to an online format. Tapping into Open Educational Resources (OER) is an excellent path forward for finding, creating and customizing openly-licensed materials for your teaching and learning. OER are educational materials (including textbooks, modules, streaming media, simulations, images and much more) that can be an accessible, adaptable, time-saving and engaging alternative to commercially published textbooks and creating your own learning materials from scratch. Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of the variety of sources and collections that exist for OER, including our own McMaster’s OER By Discipline Guide and explore examples of how these have been successfully used in online courses. Join us and discover a path forward in how to best source and use open content in your teaching and learning.
