Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

In the Fall of 2012 our Instructional Team launched a newly developed version of EDU 210: Introduction to Educational Technologies. The goal of the redevelopment was to make the course more relevant, engaging and current in the large scale lecture component of this course. As part of this process we replaced the textbook with openly available resources and switched to using only free technology tools.

The result has been that students save money, we are able to be more flexible in our course design and we have created open resources to share back to the community. In this session we will share some of our experiences in adopting, adapting and creating Open Educational Resources.
