Hands-On OER Workshop

Hands-On OER Workshop for LCC Faculty

Friday, October 27, 2017
Time: 12:00pm - TBD
A&S 111-112
Professor Delmar Larsen of LibreText and UC Davis

LibreText is an extensive OER Wikipedia-like enterprise for faculty members to create and freely distribute instructional content. Within the LibreText framework, one can:

  • Retain
  • Reuse
  • Revise
  • Remix
  • Redistribute

Collectively, at the end of 2016, LibreText free textbooks had over 200 million page views and benefited more than 60 million students globally. Central to the success of the LibreText enterprise is the construction and adoption of faculty specific freely accessible LibreTexts that substitute for conventional textbooks.

Professor Larsen will help LCC faculty members create their own LibreText sites on their own devices. Once created, LCC faculty members will be able to access the LibreText libraries to adopt existing content and create their own content as they deem appropriate. Ultimately, this workshop will give LCC faculty members the opportunity to join the growing LibreText community and contribute freely to the expanding global knowledge base.
