Topic: Adapting OER for your Unique Context
When: Thursday, 15 August, 2019, 2 pm EST / 11 am PST / 6 pm UTC
Guest Speakers: Carrie Cuttler (Assistant Professor, Dept. of Psychology, Washington State University), Linda J. Frederiksen (Head of Access Services, Washington State University, Vancouver), and Werner Westermann (Head of Civic Training Program, Library of the National Congress, Chile).
For every classroom, there’s a possible adaptation. One of the major advantages of OER is the ability to customize and remix so that students, instructors, and institutions can benefit from content tailored to their unique contexts. And, with every remix, the original authors can gain new audiences and a broader reach. This month, our guests will share case studies of open textbook translations, localizations, and cross-discipline adaptations. They will discuss practical knowledge about the process, focusing on how they defined their goals and scoped adaptation projects. There will also be an opportunity to discuss your adaptation projects with speakers and other attendees.
