This resource is a template for designing a Professional Learning Series. This template was designed for the OER Advanced Skills series in June 2023. This course is designed to provide new faculty members at community colleges with a comprehensive understanding of the Backwards Design Framework and its application in the development of effective courses. Through a series of step-by-step lessons, participants will learn how to design courses that align with learning objectives, engage students, and promote successful outcomes. By the end of this course, participants will be equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to create impactful and student-centered community college courses.
You can use CC-licensed materials as long as you follow the license conditions. One condition of all CC licenses is attribution: crediting the author and giving the source information. Generally speaking, attribution must reasonably include all relevant information supplied by the licensor. Because each use case is different, you can decide what form of attribution is most suitable for your specific situation. The following examples are intended to illustrate what typical prudent practices look like. We expect community norms and expectations to evolve with time, and will adapt this guide accordingly. In addition to attribution, there are also things to consider as a licensor or a licensee. If you are a licensor and would like to learn how to mark your own material with a CC license, here.

This session introduces a variety of creative ways in which OER have been utilized in Texas, in instruction and beyond. Additionally, a demo of current projects includes a deep dive into the OER Nursing Essentials Project (O.N.E.) – a collaborative effort between THECB and OpenStax, an introduction to the THECB’s Student Success Inventory, and the unveiling of the Texas OER Playbook.
“Digital,” “library,” “pedagogy” — what happens when these three terms are brought together as the foundations of a community of practice? The strategies and insights gathered here suggest a preliminary answer to that question, but the short version might be: a lot. Digital access and affordances spark new approaches to primary sources; memes model scholarly conversation; hands-on work with APIs and web scraping quickly bring the rhetoric of the digital as seamless access to information back down to earth.
"The #DLFteach Toolkit Volume 2 focuses on lesson plans to facilitate disciplinary and interdisciplinary work engaged with 3D technology. As 3D technology becomes relevant to a wide range of scholarly disciplines and teaching context, libraries are proving well-suited to coordinating the dissemination and integration of this technology across the curriculum. For our purposes, 3D technology includes, but is not limited to, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies, 3D modeling and scanning software, 3D game engines and WebGL platforms, as well as 3D printers and extruders. While 3D/VR/AR technologies demonstrate real possibilities for collaborative, multidisciplinary learning, they are also fraught with broader concerns prevalent today about digital technologies.
To develop instructional resources that recognize and reflect the diversity of context and practice within this broad, emerging field, the DLF Toolkit Volume 2 is based on a decolonial, anti-ableist, and feminist pedagogical framework for collaboratively developing and curating humanities content for this emerging technology. Lesson plans cover a wide range of disciplines and stages of the 3D data life cycle, guiding educators through the complex process of integrating emerging 3D technologies into various pedagogical settings by illustrating the possibilities of using 3D/VR/AR to extend critical thinking."
The nine lessons in this volume cover foundational digital tools like Voyant and Omeka and newer ones such as Transkribus and the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF). Most lessons focus on the act of making and engaging with tools, while others address misinformation and algorithmic bias. The structure and length of the lessons vary considerably, with some designed for standalone sessions and others spanning the duration of a course.

This resource provides a brief introduction to driver diagrams, a tool used in design and continuous improvement to help identify and organize the key drivers or factors that influence a desired outcome or goal. It includes an editable PowerPoint slide that serves as driver diagram template and example.
This resource is a template for creating and curating OER ancillary materials. This template was designed for the OER Advanced Skills series in June 2023.The English Composition OER Starter Pack is a series of original infographics and posters designed for developmental and introductory composition courses. The starter pack includes lessons on: MLA formatting, formal writing, and the parts of an academic essay. The ancillaries can be used individually, collectively, or in conjunction with a forthcoming OERTX professional learning series. The English Composition OER Starter Pack is designed for instant use; English composition instructors new to OER or higher education can download the infographics and include them in any course offerings. These lecture materials are a series of original lecture materials. It can be difficult to find basic, professional, or educational composition open educational resources designed specifically designed for higher education and adult learners. These infographics and posters are purposefully designed to meet those needs; they contain basic information presented in a clear, clean, and simple format.
This book is the result of a co-design project in a class in the Masters of Education program at the University of Calgary. The course, and the resulting book, focus primarily on the safe and ethical use of technology in digital learning environments. The course was organized according to four topics based on Farrow’s (2016) Framework for the Ethics of Open Education and discusses Artificial Intelligence (AI) , social networking services (SNS), 3D printing, resource sharing, adaptive learning systems, STEM, assistive technologies, admissions, and communications. In each of the nine chapters, the authors discuss the connection to the value of technology in education, and practical possibilities of learning technologies for inclusive, participatory, democratic, and pluralistic educational paradigms.

"Global Climate Change through Geologic Time" is a remix with enhancements that fits within content I implement with my students called the "Global Change Modern and Paleo Considerations" module, for example. My adopted then adapted expanded item is an extension of earlier modular activities I designed to do with students including How Science Works from Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and using the HHMI Earth Explorer interactive to consider data trends through time that my classes do earlier in a semester. There is also a series of embedded, supporting ADA Compliant streaming videos used and I also include engagement through the UCMP Understanding Science interactive platform.
