It is officially fall, or maybe the new Montana hybrid of fall/winter.  During this season that is often full of preparing for family gatherings, work events, and more, TRAILS is busy ramping up the work in open education and textbook affordability.

New workshops have been added to the fall schedule.  New opportunities for professional development are coming up.  New grant opportunities are being prepared to be shared later this month.  Check out our latest schedule with links to sign up for any or all events.  Here’s the highlights.

More Virtual Review workshops have been added by faculty request.  This are a brief introduction to what OER is and how it may benefit you.

The ReDesign Your Course with OER class is running again!  This was a great success with faculty who participated this summer.  This fall, faculty will be joined with colleagues from Montana and other west coast states in this iteration of the class.  This is asynchronous to best fit your schedule and allow for the maximum benefit.  Questions?  Check out the introductory sign-up here.

NEW!!! An Open Pedagogy workshop is now on the schedule!  Yes, you requested it; it has been added.  Interested in learning more about open teaching practices but not sure about switching textbooks, maybe you don’t even use a textbook?  This is the workshop for you.

Looking for more from TRAILS OER?  Let me know what you need.  In the meantime, if you missed the Fall OER starter packet, this is full of lots of links and ideas to get you started.
