Center for Learning and Teaching
As defined by UNESCO (2012), Open Educational Resources (OER) are "any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them. OERs range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation."
CLT invites you to submit a proposal to share your OER story with colleagues and community partners as we reflect on ways that we can learn, teach, inspire, and connect with each other and with our community at large. Proposals will be accepted online from Tuesday, January 17, 2017, through Tuesday, February 28, 2017. Download the proposal worksheet to plan ahead for online submission.
CLT welcomes Dr. David Wiley as the institute keynote. Dr. Wiley is Chief Academic Officer of Lumen Learning. He is also the Education Fellow at Creative Commons and adjunct faculty in Brigham Young University's graduate program in Instructional Psychology and Technology, where he leads the Open Education Group (and was previously a tenured Associate Professor).
