Heather Rayl helping lead the ISU OER charge

Posted by isulib on September 19, 2016

Emerging Technologies librarian Heather Rayl has had a busy summer, helping a Communication Department team convert the Comm 101 textbook into an Open Education Resource text.

She also maintains a guide to OER information at  Open Educational Resources.

As more faculty become aware of the OER movement, workshops are being provided to spread the info.

The next workshop will be held Tuesday September 20, 2016 in the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence, Library room 103, 3-4pm.

Promo: Are you frustrated with your textbook? Are you looking for ways to inject more custom materials into your class? Then Open Educational Resources might be the answer for you! Stop by the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence for a workshop on what OERs are, how to find them, and maybe even earn some money on the side just for converting your class! Light refreshments will be served. 

For more information, contact Heather.Rayl@indstate.edu or call (812) 237-2150
