This workshop will introduce concepts, terminology, and interaction models around open Education Resources (OER), which are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use. These include: syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, teaching and learning strategies, simulations, and other types of resources contained in online collections from around the world. The emergence of OER signals the growing trend toward openness for teaching and learning materials, and a movement away from proprietary materials, tools, databases, and software systems. Re-use and adaptation of OER by educators bring new potential to support individualized teaching and learning, personalized networked services, and collaborative innovation across institutions and academic disciplines. In addition to presenting the growing trends in the use and re-use of open content, this workshop will address pragmatic considerations for instructors to incorporate OER in the classroom and the emerging options for individualizing teaching and learning materials. This workshop will also introduce OER Commons, a teacher knowledge management system created for educators to engage with open educational materials.

Lisa Petrides, Ph.D. is president and founder of the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), an independent non-profit educational research think tank located in Half Moon Bay, CA. ISKME conducts research studies that seek to understand how those within K-20 education institutions (and the organizations that support them) build capacity to systematically collect and share information, apply it to well-defined problems, and create knowledge-driven environments focused on student learning and institutional success. ISKME projects include the development of research and tools for use and reuse of open content; developmental education and online learning; the supply and demand for information and knowledge sharing and accountability. A former professor in the Department of Organization and Leadership at Columbia University, Teachers College, she received a Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University and an MBA from Sonoma State University, and was a postdoctoral fellow in Educational Policy Research Division at Educational Testing Service.
