Enhancing Teaching and Learning on a Shoestring Budget

Tuesday, March 19 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 553
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Two smaller higher education institutions will share the obstacles and accomplishments of trying to enhance teaching and learning initiatives with limited funds. This session highlights projects that showcase the curation, creation, and sharing of resources, to include: Open Educational Resources (OERs) and digital learning objects (DLO). Both projects reveal strategies for leveraging the capabilities of existing infrastructure to keep costs to a minimum by using existing campus resources such as LibGuides and the campus Learning Management Systems (LMS). This session discusses key collaborations, good instructional design practices, and the technical details of creating and sharing OERs and DLO materials.

Outcomes: Identify strategies for creating OER and DLO materials to enhance teaching and learning * Design effective paths of sharing OER and DLO materials with faculty and students * Examine best practices for using common technologies to organize and share OER and DLO materials
