Starting September 1, OER Office Hours daily!
After our twenty-one webinars, campus visits, and other events this summer, we feel like we are getting to know many of you, and are happy to be collaborating on adopting, adapting, and building OER courses at your colleges. (Those webinars are archived here.) Did you know: 98+ VCCS courses are scheduled to go OPEN this fall/spring? (grinning broadly)
You told us that collaboration with your peers across the VCCS in exploring OER is vital to you, and of course, that is the point of this grant project. So we are excited to announce our next step: daily scheduled office hours. Some of these sessions (TBA) will be a meet-up for those collaborating on specific course building and planning, and others will be your open forum for discussions of anything you want to explore in OER theory and practice, including any technical help and support you need. Click here for instructions and to see the days and times on the calendar. No sign up is necessary – you will join us in a Google Hangout linked there by logging into your VCCS Gmail (ex: email@example.com).
You know how happy you are when students show up at office hours? We feel the same – we are looking forward to seeing you there!
