The use of Open Educational Resources is a trend that can have major impact on academic instruction and learning. What are Open Educational Resources? Should we opt to use them? To save money? To facilitate sharing? What are the barriers of OER, and what happens with copyright? This event will include an overview of OER in higher education from one of the most recognized writers on the topic, followed by time for questions from AMICAL members and discussion.
How to attend this webinar:
- Test your system: As far in advance as possible, run the Adobe Connect Connection Test to check that your system is set up adequately for participating in the webinar.
- Hardware requirements: You will need a computer with stable internet connectivity, along with headphones or speakers. You will be able to use a microphone for questions if the host enables this, but in any case you will be able to send questions to the speaker by typing into the chat or Q&A box. You will not need a webcam.

- Enter as Guest, with full name and institution: AMICAL is a community of people trying to help, and learn from, each other. We’d like to encourage these personal connections and sense of community by having everyone enter their first and last names as well as their institution (e.g. AU Kuwait or AU Rome).
