Finding and selecting OER to adopt at your college can raise questions about both the quality and accessibility of the content for your students.  Join us for this webinar to hear about best practices and rubrics developed to ensure that OER content meets instructional material standards, accessibility guidelines, and open licensing policies established at your institution. These rubrics assist faculty, librarians, instructional designers and other staff to select and adapt open educational resources that meet student needs regardless of disability but are also culturally relevant and engaging for students at your institution and can be freely re-used, re-mixed, and re-distributed.

When: Wed, May 10, at 10am PT/ 1pm ET

Featured Speakers:

  • Lori Catallozzi, Dean of Humanities and Learning Communities, Bunker Hill Community College, MA will share promising practices for designing digital open educational resources that are culturally relevant and engaging for students.  
  • Paula Michniewicz, Instructional Designer, Salt Lake Community College, UT will share best practices for evaluating digital open educational resources for meeting Section 508/ADA standards and guidelines for Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
  • Quill West, OER Project Manager, Pierce College District, WA will share best practices for ensuring the proper vetting and attribution of open educational resources.
