Upcoming OERI Webinars and Events
The ASCCC OERI provides professional development regarding OER via webinars, visits to colleges, events, and presentations. During the academic year, weekly webinars provide a forum to share discipline-based information as well as information on specific topics related to OER advocacy, adoption, and development. Live webinars provide an opportunity for the OERI to hear from faculty at the colleges and our archived webinars serve as a useful library of resources. During the Spring 2021 term our weekly webinars are Fridays at 10:30 am, beginning on February 5..
Beginning November 2020, the ASCCC OERI will provide automated captioning for all webinars and OER Liaison events (i.e., conversations, orientations, and webinars). If you would like to request a live human closed captioner for any of our offerings, please contact us by e-mail at least 10 business days in advance.
Archived OERI Webinars
All formal OERI Webinars are archived. In the event that a webinar is repeated, one archive will typically be made available. If you are ever interested in the slides used for a webinar, please contact us.
