Developing the Skills for Success in Statistics with Open Educational Resources (OER) - Online Homework Systems, Videos, and More
Every mathematics department in the California Community College system is working to address student needs, especially in light of AB 705. This workshop will bring mathematics faculty that teach statistics together to share the approaches being employed to help students succeed in their statistics classes whether it be with a traditional prerequisite or with a corequisite support course. This interactive, hands-on workshop is a professional development opportunity for faculty to learn ways to find and work with available OER resources, including text-based material, videos, and the MyOpenMath online assignment system. The goal is to work as a mathematics community to provide students with a no-cost collection of resources that will lead them to success in mastering the course content and that can be accessed as references for future use.
May 10 – Curating and Publishing OER Materials - 9:30 am to 10:30 am
For faculty who wish to adapt existing OER or create their own, how do they get started? And where do they place the content? This webinar will explore a few of the OER platform options available for faculty to house OER content, including LibreTexts, OER Commons, and Pressbooks.
May 17 – OERI What's Next - 9:30 am to 10:30 am
After a very busy 1st term, what's next for the ASCCC OER Initiative?

Bring your questions, observations, and suggestions.
