May 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
In this webinar, hear from Andrew Marcinek, former open education advisor for the U.S. Department of Education, on powering student engagement with a successful open educational resources (OER) strategy. Marcinek will provide an overview of open educational resources, dispel some common myths around OER, and share lessons and practical tips learned from his own OER journey. He will wrap up by highlighting key OER resources and discussing the current direction of the #GoOpen movement before handing the reins over to co-presenter Michele Eaton, CETL, director of virtual & blended learning, the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township, Ind. Eaton will discuss how her district’s integration of Gooru and other OER content fits into its digital curriculum strategy, and how the use of high-quality, curated OER is impacting student engagement.
