Event description


Open educational resources (OER) can help spark and deepen a culture of sharing instructional design that supports teacher leadership and student growth. Many teachers are exploring and using OER but how are districts and schools managing the process to best take advantage of these resources? As schools begin their journeys towards personalizing learning, using OER is another tool that can promote innovative and more personalized instruction and teacher collaboration.

In this introductory session, district and school leaders will learn about the terminology surrounding OER, such as Creative Commons and open licensing. Participants will learn from case studies of #GoOpen Districts across the country and hear from MAPLE districts about why they support OER and their implementation process for managing OER.

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand why OER is important and why many districts and schools choose to use them

  • Determine their own level of OER implementation

  • Develop actionable steps for improving OER implementation within their school or district

  • Understand OER licensing and the various types of creative commons licenses

  • Share and discuss solutions and challenges through case studies
