Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This collaboratively authored guide helps institutions navigate the uncharted waters of tagging course material as open educational resources (OER) or under a low-cost threshold by summarizing relevant state legislation, providing tips for working with stakeholders, and analyzing technological and process considerations. The first half of the book provides high-level analysis of the technology, legislation, and cultural change needed to operationalize course markings. The second half features case studies by Alexis Clifton, Rebel Cummings-Sauls, Michael Daly, Juville Dario-Becker, Tony DeFranco, Cindy Domaika, Ann Fiddler, Andrea Gillaspy Steinhilper, Rajiv Jhangiani, Brian Lindshield, Andrew McKinney, Nathan Smith, and Heather White.

The OER Starter Kit – Simple Book Publishing
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

“This starter kit has been created to provide instructors with an introduction to the use and creation of open educational resources (OER). The text is broken into five sections: Getting Started, Copyright, Finding OER, Teaching with OER, and Creating OER. Although some chapters contain more advanced content, the starter kit is primarily intended for users who are entirely new to Open Education.”

While some of the content included in the handbook is Iowa State University-specific, these examples are few and I have tried to make the text as generalizable as possible. I welcome any comments for potential edits and additions to the text and will add an errata/tracking changes page to the front matter in the future. I especially welcome comments on my Diversity and Inclusion chapter, since I am not the most well-versed on that topic.

If you would like to adapt the text for use at your institution, please let me know so I can add links to your adaptations in the future. If you are interested in working with me on a second edition in the future, feel free to reach out! I’d love to make a more advanced version with additional sections for OER program managers and librarians.

The OER Starter Kit was originally adapted from the ABOER Starter Kit, but blossomed into a much larger project over the past few months. It includes content from Billy Meinke’s excellent UH OER Training manual, SUNY’s wonderful OER Community Courses, and others, all of which can be found on the kit’s Attribution page and on the footnotes of their corresponding chapters.

This resource was developed by a working group from the Iowa Open Education Action Team (Iowa OER). Our team built upon DOERS3's OER in Tenure & Promotion Matrix to help faculty and staff advocate for the inclusion of open educational practices (OEP) in promotion, tenure, and faculty evaluation practices at their institutions. Below, you can find our main document, directions for interacting with the text, and handouts you can use or adapt for your own advocacy work.

Open Learning Experiences "Fortune Teller"
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This fun "fortune teller" is intended to support Open Pedagogy trainings or groups activities. Colors are spelled out along the outside edge to facilitate easier use for those without access to a color printer.

The fortune teller was based on a template found at www.downloadablecootiecatchers.wordpress.com, and was inspired by the excellent OKP Learning Experience Bingo board by Nate Angell: http://xolotl.org/okp-learning-experience-bingo-2-0/

Activity instructions:
1. Select one ingredient from the OKP Learning Experience Bingo board (People, Places, Materials, etc).
2. Select a color and alternate opening one end of the device or another while spelling out the color.
3. Look at the choices of numbers that appear within the device and select one, spelling it out as you did the color.
4. From the available numbers on the open end of your fortune teller, select one and open its compartment to see which Dimension of Openness you have been assigned.
5. Brainstorm an activity or experience that exemplifies that Dimension and relates to your chosen Ingredient from the bingo board.
