The OER Workshop at IMU!


This 2-day workshop will be conducted at the International Medical University (IMU) from 22 – 23 November, 2012. It will empower you with the necessary skills to find, reuse, remix and create Open Educational Resources (OER) for your courses. During the first day, we will explore and discuss together the concept of OER, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), Creative Commons (CC), business models, and variety of OpenCourseWare (OCW) case studies and content development tools. During the 2nd day, participants will be required to work in groups (hands-on) to create a course topic/module (of choice) by reusing and remixing OER from a variety of resources. In the final session, we will discuss how to move forward with OER at our institutions.

After completing this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the benefits and challenges of OER.
  • Explore Creative Commons as an alternative to Copyright.
  • Find OER and OCW using a variety of search tools.
  • Identify a variety of web 2.0 and Social Media tools to develop OER.
