Using Open Educational Materials in Your Courses
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Rm A543, City Tech Library (Atrium Building), City Tech
High-quality open access curricular materials are increasingly available online, and can provide an alternative to traditionally-published, high-priced textbooks. In this workshop we’ll discuss strategies for incorporating freely-available open access and public domain resources into your courses. Bring your syllabus or assignment and we will work together to add resources to your course website on Blackboard, the City Tech OpenLab, or other online platforms.
Coffee & cookies will be served.
