Remixing and Reusing OER
Workshop Session 1
This workshop provide step-by-step instruction on how to remix and reuse open educational materials including determining production and distribution options based the original source license, personalizing materials to your teaching and learning needs, creating attributions for publication and distribution, relicensing and sharing your work.
Before the availability of open educational resources (OER), faculty were restricted to commercial publications designed for broad audiences with general theories and concepts across a wide array of topics. Though commercial resources offer relevant information and supplemental materials, they do not always meet the needs and interests of faculty and students. Adopting openly licensed resources offers faculty the freedom to reuse and remix materials that complement their teaching style and instructional approach integrating their discipline expertise and knowledge about their students. In this session, faculty will learn ways to use, apply, and design OER materials.
