About this Workshop:

This workshop will provide participants with a brief overview of Open Educational Resources (OER) and the advantages of using them. It is best suited for educators engaged in teaching and learning but will be also beneficial to staff developers and curriculum managers.

Workshop participants will engage in activities that will introduce them to exemplary collections of OER, help them find OER and learn how to integrate them into their own teaching context and practice.  

The workshop will also present opportunities to discuss what are the barriers to adopting OER in higher education from the point of view of teachers and learners as key stakeholders as well as identify and highlight some enablers to help overcome the barriers or perceived barriers and link these to the benefits and value of OER.
