    Open Educational Resources (OER) reside in the public domain and are free to use for teaching and learning. Within these repositories are a variety of multimedia, learning objects, tutorials etc. that offer quick way to enhance any topic. Websites such as National Geographic, Merlot, and Kahn Academy provide tutorials, multimedia, simulations and even assignments that can be easily added to any hybrid course, creating a richer learning experience. Certain OER’s lend themselves to specific disciplines while others are inclusive to all disciplines. During this workshop we will explore several OER’s and how they can be used to enhance your hybrid course.

    Handheld portable devices, such as tablets and smartphones, along with wireless technology, have reshaped our daily lives in radical ways. How can we harness this evolution to increase the potential of learning in our classrooms?   The Teaching, Learning and Technology Center (TLTC), for the Fall of 2012, is offering a series of workshops to explore practical applications and techniques supported by mobile environments to increase connection and engagement  while expanding e-learning opportunities to our students.

    What exactly is mobile learning anyway?  Key components fall under three concepts which include the mobility of the technology and learners, and learning anywhere and everywhere. Don’t miss this chance to investigate and explore the potential of this highly changing, dynamic form of delivery with the TLTC this fall!
