Interested in how instructors are incorporating open education into their teaching? Hear from the 2020-2021 OER Grantees as they update us on their awarded projects. Learn about the projects (one Adaptation and two Creation); hear about the grantees’ experiences with exploring new teaching approaches using OER: and hear about students’ experiences with contributing to course content. There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentation. Learn more about the McMaster OER Grant which will be offered again in Spring 2021.
