Designing High-Impact Courses for Blended Environments Using OERs
Limited Capacity seats available

Presentation Site
This hands-on workshop will give participants an opportunity to create instructional learning outcomes and align assessments to those learning outcomes for a "mini course" of their choosing. We will then discuss methods for finding, evaluating, and incorporating open educational resources into curriculum that would support student learning in a blended or flipped classroom environment.

The goal of this workshop is to help teachers improve course quality by ensuring alignment among course components and incorporating engaging resources that help students see the relevance of content they are learning.
