Section 4: Using and adapting OER to support teaching and learning


For many years teachers and teacher educators have had limited access to resources to support their work. With the availability of Open Education Resources (OER) since 2002 this has changed. There are now many free, helpful teaching resources available on the internet which will help teachers and teacher educators learn how to develop active approaches to teaching and learning.

In this section you will learn about OER, how to find them, how to select what you want and how to think about adapting them. Before continuing it is useful to review the key points about OER. You will do this by completing a quiz on OER. This quiz is not part of the assessment of the course.
