Webinar series for faculty on using and creating Open Education Resources

What are Open Education Resources (OER) and how can faculty incorporate them into their classes? Clemson faculty are invited to learn more about OER in a series of three free webinars being offered by PASCAL’s SC Affordable Learning (SCALE) initiative.

Introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER)

Thursday, September 29, 2022
3:00pm – 4:30pm
REGISTER: https://pascalsc.libcal.com/event/9620387

Are you interested in OER but not sure where to start? Join us for this 90-minute webinar to learn how OER can benefit both faculty and students. Learn how to determine whether a resource is an OER and where these materials can be found.

OER can give you the freedom to include the material you believe is most important for your students to know and understand.  It also provides your students with the ability to have the textbook and other course materials on day one of the class, making sure that no one is trying to play catch-up once their financial aid has arrived.

Attendees will have the opportunity to review a textbook that is in the Open Textbook Library. If you choose to write a review, you will receive an official thank you letter from PASCAL for your tenure file.
