Attend OERizona to Learn More about Open Education

OERizona Event to Highlight Open Education Practices and Practitioners

Pressbooks is proud to cosponsor the first ever  OERizona event this autumn! This free workshop takes place the day before the 16th Annual Open Education Conference in Arizona. We hope you’ll help us spread the word, or register and attend if you’ll be in town! You’ll find all the details below.

Interested in knowing more about how to use open education practices in your classroom? The open education community in Arizona has come together to create an opportunity for teachers, administrators, librarians and others to learn more about Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices & Pedagogies (OEP).

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at Glendale Community College in Glendale, Arizona, for OERizona, a free day-long workshop where participants can engage in hands-on activities with open education. From 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., practitioners from around the Likestate, country and beyond can come together to make meaningful change in their open education community. Those unable to travel to Glendale, Arizona, can attend as virtual participants for free.

Are you already at work using open resources in your classroom, or who would like to but don’t know where to get started? Come meet like-minded colleagues while learning more about how to facilitate open education at your institution.

Held on Tuesday, Oct. 29, the day before the 2019 Open Education Conference (Oct. 30–Nov. 1), OERizona welcomes #OpenEd19 attendees and others with any level of open education experience — from curious newcomers to practiced champions. Educators, librarians, instructional designers, educational technologists and people in other roles supporting teaching and learning are encouraged to attend this day of active exploration and collaboration.

Built around inspiring talks by active OER and OEP practitioners, the day’s activities will include annotating, remixing and extending resources, and more.

Participants will connect with peers working on open education projects at other institutions and leave with new skills and ideas on how to extend their open education practices.

Held at Glendale Community College, this event is free to attend and sponsored by CCCOER, Glendale Community College, Hypothesis, Maricopa Millions, Pressbooks, the University of Arizona and Arizona State University.

Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided. A no-host social gathering will follow the event.
