CARLI is pleased to offer a 3-week synchronous and asynchronous course on open educational resources.

Live Sessions via Zoom on June 10, 17, and 24 at 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (materials for first session sent to participants on June 3)

Attendees should plan to attend each live session for month that they register. The content of each month's session will be the same; register for one option only. 

CARLI is planning to offer this program multiple times throughout the year. 

The virtual program will contain both synchronous (3 live 90 minutes Zoom sessions) and asynchronous (readings, videos, etc.) to be completed before each live session. The live sessions will include some presentations, but the aim of the program planners is that these will incorporate a flipped classroom model to build community among participants as all share and discuss the topics.

Technology used for live sessions: Zoom, ideally participants will be able to use video as well as audio.

The asynchronous portions of the training, shared with participants weekly, should not take longer than one hour of your time prior to each live session.

The train-the-trainer program is designed to help the novice person learning about open educational resources to apply the information from this program to build their own local programs and workshops as they move up the Bloom’s Taxonomy from remember and understand to apply.
