OER-101: Learn the Basics and Benefits of the Open Educational Resource - Faculty eCommons

OER-101: Learn the Basics and Benefits of the Open Educational Resource - Faculty eCommons | Professional Development | Scoop.it
OER-101 starts with the basics, namely what makes a resource “open” and the benefits of incorporating Open Education into your learning environment, and is split into five modules or “pursuits.”

 

"With the cost of textbooks and tuition on the rise, the necessity of incorporating Open Educational Resources (OERs) into curricula for all ages and all levels of education is undeniable. Do you struggle with finding high-quality OERs on the web or question whether or not certain resources are actually “open?” Would you like to create your own OER but don’t know how to begin or what steps to take?

 

Maybe you are even asking yourself, “What the heck is an OER?”

 

If you find yourself mulling over these questions or simply have an interest in learning more about creating and utilizing OERs, self-enroll in Open SUNY’s new Open Course on CourseSites. The course, “Locating, Creating, Licensing, and Utilizing OERs (OER-101),” is free and provides a wealth of information on OERs for both novice OER users and those already familiar with the world of the Open Educational Resource." from source: http://facultyecommons.com/

Wallflowers at the Revolution: Evolving Faculty Perspectives on Online Education

Wallflowers at the Revolution: Evolving Faculty Perspectives on Online Education | Professional Development | Scoop.it

The 2013 Inside Higher Ed Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology, jointly administered by Inside Higher Ed and Gallup, is the second annual attempt to gauge academic opinion on technology and teaching. Often, faculty opinion is based on little direct experience or familiarity, or biased based on their own plunge into online learning. Regardless, the evolving subjective perceptions of e-learning are fascinating to see unfold. Even when experiences are anecdotal or uniformed, this survey shows how, in aggregate, educational technology is gradually becoming a fixture within academe. But not without its nagging controversies. We are in the midst of something between an evolution and a revolution—a modification of business-as-usual and a major transformation. These findings provide a snapshot of our changing times, which will likely look dated and even naive a few years from now.
