Posted on 10/15/2014

STEM Open Educational Resources

Spreading the word about open educational resources (OER) and their value in adult education is a primary goal of the OER STEM project. They recently created an OER Fact Sheet for Adult Education External link opens in new window or tab to help adult educators and others in the field learn more about OER. This fact sheet defines OER and provides links to find, evaluate, create, and share OER. In addition, they have included an adult education-specific example of what instruction with OER could look like. They welcome you to read, share, and modify this resource for your use—you can find the fact sheet on our LINCS project page External link opens in new window or tab and on OER Commons External link opens in new window or tab.

As a reminder, they have created a public Groups page External link opens in new window or tab on OER Commons for adult educators and learners to use as a repository of OER for the adult education classroom. Please contact them at OERSTEM@air.org with questions or visit the project page External link opens in new window or tab for more information about OER in adult education.
