OER Professional Development Workshop for Faculty

The Open Educational Resources (OER) Steering Committee invites all faculty to attend an open session with Tyler Fregona, our OER liaison with Top Hat. We have partnered with Top Hat as one source of support for our OER Initiative at SRU. Tyler will be providing a demo and information about how Top Hat can support the integration of OER into courses at an open session on Oct 2 at 12:00 PM, held in Smith Center, Room 322. Refreshments will be provided.

Tyler will also be available for individual sessions with faculty on Oct 1 & 2. He will answer questions about Top Hat’s OER platform and provide information about their classroom engagement tools. The classroom engagement system includes a classroom response system, assignment tools for interactive homework, and the ability to administer secure tests and quizzes, all of which are made available to students on their own devices.

If faculty members have applied for or are considering applying for an OER Faculty Professional Development Grant (www.sru.edu/oer), we especially encourage you to attend the open session or schedule a meeting, as meeting with Tyler is one component of the grant program. You can sign up for a meeting here.

If you are unable to meet with Tyler during these days and would like to schedule a 1:1 session online please contact him at tyler.fregona@tophat.com or schedule a meeting directly with him
