Wednesday Afternoon OER Pecha Kucha Session
Presentation 3

Jocelyn Steward, Ethel Callen, Kendolyn Smith

Transforming a class by eliminating textbooks and using open educational resources can be a daunting task. While there are many resources available, navigating through the information may prove difficult and may deter those who wish to use open educational resources in place of textbooks. The presentation will demonstrate a way to transform five undergraduate and graduate courses in a health care management program from using standard textbooks to open educational resources. This presentation will provide a demonstration on how the team completed the transformation including developing modules, appropriate learning objectives, finding course material, and developing interactive material to promote student engagement. Participants will leave the presentation with tools and strategies to use when transforming their own classes. The team received a grant from ALG to complete the transformation.
