The Center for Teaching and Professional Development (CTPD) is working to help faculty and students better utilize Open Educational Resources toward their teaching and learning needs. In addition to a faculty pilot project currently under way, CTPD is asking all faculty members to complete a 5-10 minute survey.
The survey can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WRLS7FT.
The goal of this survey is to determine the overall understanding of Open Educational Resources, as well as ways faculty would like support toward using them. Open Educational Resources have many benefits, for both faculty and students.
All faculty members who complete this important project activity will be entered into an iPad drawing. The survey closes on December 17 and the iPad recipient will be contacted on December 20.
Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use or re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.
Questions may be directed to Brett Christie, CTPD, at 4-2873 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
