Libraries - Open Educational Resources Adoption
This series of badges demonstrate knowledge of open educational resources and how OER can be integrated into effective teaching practices.
To earn a bronze badge, complete an online learning module or in-person workshop and write a short reflection. Content will include several components, including information and activities on OER in general, open licenses, and the benefits for students and instructors when faculty use OER.
To earn a silver badge, complete a bronze badge and then identify and evaluate OER which you could adopt for a course you teach. Review the OER (one OER that could replace a currently-used textbook, or 3 OER that could supplement a course), and share that review in an online platform, such as a personal blog or the Open Textbook Library.
To earn a gold badge, complete bronze and silver badges, adopt an OER for a course, and take the next step. Make use of the permissions granted by open licenses to develop a teaching activity or lesson plan that involves reusing, revising, and/or remixing an OER. Or, remix and republish your own OER.
