Free Open Educational Resources (OER) Mini-Courses now Available
Six online mini-courses focusing on specific aspects of Open Educational Resources (OER) are now open. Winter break is a great time to explore them at your own pace and add to your knowledge.
The SUNY OER Community Courses introduce you to the fundamental principles and effective practices related to Open Educational Resources.
Six independent mini-courses allow you to focus on the specific aspect of OER that most appeal to your interests. Content is designed to serve the needs of faculty, librarians, instructional designers, and others across SUNY who are teaching or supporting OER efforts on their campus.
While we encourage those new to open educational resources to start with either the “Understanding OER” or “Open Pedagogy Master Class” sections, any participant is welcome to jump in to start at any appealing point.
Most of the mini-courses require 5-10 hours to complete. Work is done at your own pace.
