Proposal Abstract

Subtheme: Lemonade from Lemons in COVID Subtheme: Beyond Barriers: OER (Open Educational Resources) The Learning Design and Innovations (LDI) Department includes faculty members across several functional areas who work to support open learning and campus faculty in the design and delivery of courses for on campus, online and alternate modes of delivery. Since the start of the pandemic, LDI have offered workshops, training sessions, and developed a wide range of resources to help faculty and students achieve success as they teach and learn online. In this session, we will present two resources that the team developed in response to the transition — an adapted open resource Teaching without Walls, and new student Moodle and WordPress resources Learning without Walls. We will discuss the resources through the lens of the LDI department’s new Learner Centered Design Framework, which aims to incorporate caring, openness, connectedness, and active learning into teaching and learning experiences. Participants will be invited to share their own experiences adapting to virtual teaching and learning in collegial discussions that will be interwoven into the structure of this workshop. We also welcome feedback to help improve these resources and ensure they are as relevant as possible for our TRU community.

Statement
