Dive into OER Vetting Resources

WELCOME TO DIVE INTO OER Vetting resources

Educators are getting started with Open Educational Resources, called OER. To provide support, the REMC Association is offering “Dive into OER” with the goal of building a statewide network of advocates and facilitators to train peers. These individuals will learn about OER and the #GoOpen Michigan website during a two-day workshop, and then share this information within their school communities.

Participation

Dive into OER Vetting Resources is a two-day workshop. Participants will explore and vet Open Educational Resources using the Achieve rubric on the #GoOpenMichigan site. Participants will receive hands-on training to use the different elements of the rubric when evaluating OERs, as well as being able to provide educator feedback on the #GoOpen Michigan site. Stipends ($150) will be offered to educators who complete all of the required workshop elements. 10 SCECHs are also available upon completion of the workshop. Participants should bring their own wifi-capable device.

Prerequisite 

Some prior knowledge of OERs is required. Participants will be asked about this when they register. To build basic OER understanding or for a quick refresher, EduPaths offers a free 30-minute OER online course. Users need to create an account and login to take the course.

Registration

The one-day Dive into OER Vetting Resources workshop is free and offers 10 free SCECHs.
