The Interconnections of OERs and Instructional Design
Thursday, March 10th at 11 am EST
Presented by:
Matt Fox
This session will discuss the vital ways that Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Instructional Design are interconnected. The backbone of effective implementation of OERs is instructional design: thinking critically about the resources we use and why we chose them, how we teach and support our learners through the content, and scaffolding activities for long-term student success.

Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS): Uses and Examples for Life and in the Classroom 
Thursday, March 10th at 3pm EST 
Presented by:
Christopher Stieha, Assistant Professor of Biology
Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) is cost-free software (free as in no cost) where users are given access and allowed to distribute the source code (free as in libre).  FLOSS rival many of the standard for-cost software packages, but may not be as well known.  In this webinar, I will introduce FLOSS for activities, such as image manipulation, video creation and editing, and statistical analysis, and show examples of how I use these resources in my life and in my classroom.
