Yesterday at the Palliser District Teacher’s Convention I had the pleasure of co-presenting a session about Open Educational Resources (OER) with my friend Verena Roberts. It is always great when I get to see Verena face to face, as we usually communicate through email, direct message on Twitter and hangouts, but this was special because we were presenting a topic that we are both passionate about. It’s too bad that Stephanie Krammer wasn’t able to present with us.
Preparing the presentation was a challenge because we knew that there would be no WiFi so we couldn’t count on participants being able to access the Moodle OER course that the session was based on. We had to prepare a much more Stand and Deliver presentation than the blended style that we prefer. However, despite the limited internet access, it was a good session.
We talked about “the binder”, sharing, creative commons and OER. There were great conversations in the room and a backchannel on Twitter, despite the lack of WiFi.
If you missed the session and would like to learn about OER you can take our open OER course. It explores open educational resources, open policy, open research, open practice and everything related to working towards and advocating for open education.
