In this discussion-based webinar, you will hear about two teams who have created open educational resources (OER) with their students. There will be 20 minutes of presentation time, and the rest of the hour will be dedicated to your questions and to conversation between participants and presenters.
About the presenters' projects:
Kelly Arispe and Amber Hoye lead the Boise State University Department of World Languages' Pathways OER Language Teaching Repository, an open collection of instructional materials and professional development created by and uniquely for Idaho’s K-16 language teachers and students. Participating teachers and students come from different fields of study to create open digital activities that support the teaching and learning of foreign languages and promote intercultural competence.
Kathryn Murphy-Judy is part of a team of faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University who have developed an open, connected platform (here's the French example) where 202 students curate – search, select, and share – authentic materials online and discuss their work in virtual exchanges with native speakers. Upper-level students help triage and scaffold the best curations into online interactive modules, with an eventual goal of integrating the materials into a a series of open textbooks.
