OER Hangout: Talk to teachers who have adopted and adapted OER

Wednesday, Mar 4, 2020

5:00pm – 6:00pm

Open educational resources (OER) are free to access. Open Creative Commons licenses allow teachers to legally make copies, adapt, and share these resources in order to meet the specific needs of their students.

Celebrate Open Education Week by attending this discussion-based webinar, where you will have a chance to chat with two instructors who have adopted OER and creatively adapted the content for their language classes.

Alexandra Gouirand is a French faculty member at South Puget Sound Community College. She uses Français interactif as the main textbook in her French 1 class, as well as ancillary books and online resources including YouTube videos.

Dawn Michael has been teaching French since 1991, and is currently a high school French teacher in Ohio. She uses the open curriculum Français interactif to teach blended French 1 and 2 courses and creates her own supplements to accompany the resources.

Valérie Morgan is a French lecturer. She uses the open curriculum Français interactif to teach Levels 1, 2, and 3 French. To supplement the textbook she uses Google Classroom, Google Tools, Flipgrid, and Padlet.

There will be 20 minutes of presentation time, and the rest of the hour will be dedicated to your questions and to conversation between participants and panelists.
