Branch Alliance OER Hub

Quality Instructional Materials 

Curated by Teacher Educators at MSIs for Teacher Educators at MSIs

Learn About

Branch Alliance for Educator Diversity (BranchED) is the only non-profit organization in the country dedicated to strengthening, growing, and amplifying the impact of educator preparation at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), with the longer-range goals of both diversifying the teaching profession and intentionally addressing critical issues of educational equity for all students.

Our vision is for all students to have access to diverse, highly effective educators.

In November of 2019, we conducted focus groups with faculty and leadership of educator preparation programs at MSIs across the nation, and we learned that teacher educators at MSIs want Open Educational Resources (OER) that are not only high quality, collaborative, current, and practice-based, but that also center diverse perspectives and model OER use for teacher candidates to use in their own practice.

The BranchED OER Hub was developed for the purpose of curating and creating collaborative, quality instructional materials for teacher educators at MSIs by teacher educators at MSIs.

 

 

We would like to invite faculty in teacher preparation programs at MSIs across the United States to help build our collections! 

Inside each collection folder is a keyword that begins with "branched-" . Type the keyword in the keyword field on the metadata page of the resource that you would like to save, and it will be saved inside that collection folder for easy access upon your next visit to the BranchED hub.
