OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES (OER)
- Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities – Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities is a curated collection of reusable resources for teaching and research. Organized by keyword, each annotated artifact can be saved, shared, and downloaded. You can build and save your own collection of keywords and artifacts for ease of access. You may also download assignments and readings for immediate use. Almost every pedagogical artifact has a Creative Commons license and is meant to be downloaded, revised, and shared. In order to find the things you’re really interested in immediately, you can use the tags and search bar. For instance, if you’re interested in collaboration, other than reading the keyword entry, Collaboration, use the tag to find other pedagogical artifacts on collaboration (196!). If a colleague is just starting out in terms of converting courses to online, check out the tag “getting started” for low barrier to entry artifacts.
- New York Times Curated Curricular Instructional Resource website. The New York Times is opening up its curated curricular instructional resource website www.nytimes.com/edu to faculty and students. Sixteen weeks of access can be gained by registering at www.nytimesineducation.com/trial.
