Wednesday Afternoon OER Pecha Kucha Session
Presentation 1

Ellen Cotter, Gary Fisk, Judy Orton Grissett

This presentation describes the implementation of an Open Educational Resource (OER) in PSYC 2103 (Human Growth and Development). A chapter from an existing open textbook will be supplemented with writing and discussion assignments, outside reading, and multimedia activities. As this OER will be used for the first time during the Spring 2016 semester and the class will still be in progress at the time of the conference, this presentation focuses primarily on preparing and compiling resources as opposed to evaluating the OER's effectiveness. Topics include selecting an OER, using Python programming to develop a test bank, finding resources to supplement OER content, and assessing student perceptions of the OER. The intended audience is not only PSYC 2103 instructors but also faculty who want to use an OER but are apprehensive at not having a full textbook available for this purpose.
