CCCOER Webinar: Culture Shift to Academic Freedom
Open Education gives faculty the academic freedom to find, adapt, and create materials that are focused on how and what their students need to learn and be successful in their courses. It takes time and a different approach to your teaching practice. No longer limited by a commercial textbook’s outline of topic materials and lack of access by a significant percentage of their students, a faculty member can engage their students in more meaningful and effective learning experiences. Hear from faculty, an administrator, and a student who are engaged in this sometimes challenging culture shift to reduce inequity and grow our pedagogical practices.
