Open Educational Practices and Knowledge Mobilization
Join us for a session of the Guelph Knowledge Translation and Transfer Community of Practice!
Come learn about open educational practices (OEP) and how they support knowledge mobilization. OEP is premised on the philosophy that teaching and learning processes are most valuable when done publicly and visibly by drawing on open technologies and openly licensed resources. Folks using OEP allow their stakeholders (whether students, community members, or researchers) to contribute their voices to the larger conversation, ultimately fostering more meaningful relationships in the community or classroom. This workshop will highlight simple, straightforward, and effective ways to integrate OEP into your work.
This workshop will be lead by Ali Versluis, Open Educational Resources (OER) Librarian at the University of Guelph. In this role, Ali educates and liaises with the university community on open content, licensing, and student-centred pedagogy. She tweets pictures of plants and half-baked thoughts about academia @aliversluis.
Refreshments and snacks will be available. You'll be joining us? Help us plan by registering.
