      OER Introduction for AIU Districts

      NOTE: Meeting immediately follows the AIU monthly Curriculum Directors Meeting. If you attended the AIU OER Summit on May 12, 2016 there is no need to attend this overview. There is a growing movement nationally to discard traditional, static textbooks in favor of open educational resources (OER) that allow educators to combine multiple sources to provide customized and localized learning for students. Building on the energy and support from the OER Summit held in May, the Allegheny Intermediate Unit invites you to join us in building a regional collaborative of early adopters using open educational resources. During the 2016-17 school year, the network will meet to confer with representatives from the US DOE, leading OER providers, and other consortia to build on their knowledge, expertise, and success. This meeting will provide an overview of what OER is and isn't, a look at some of the benefits of OER, and where OER materials may be found. After this overview, we will invite you to join us for the inaugural Southwestern PA Open Educational Resources Network meeting on August 24, 2016.
