You may have heard the term “Open Educational Resources” or “OER” but what does it mean for you?
Today, Dr. Roberts, the OER Keynote speaker, will be discussing “how open educational practices can strengthen sustainable connections between universities, rural communities and cultural learning contexts. She will suggest how university programs can benefit from learning from and with multiple learning contexts. She will also advocate for how learning networks can provide the foundational bridge that can interconnect learning communities in order to expand learning opportunities for all learners. This keynote aims to emphasize how student-centered learning and open educational practices can expand learning opportunities for all learners, especially those from rural and culturally diverse communities who may have previously felt confused when designing their learning pathway in university contexts.”
The talk will be taking place today, Tuesday February 11th 7:30-8:30pm at Beatrice McDonald Hall Room 116. This is a free event with free parking.
