Room 313: Engage your Students with Assignments that Create Open, Accessible, Interactive Learning Resources
- Mary Hricko, Director, Library & Media Services, Kent State University Geauga/Twinsburg Academic Center
- Heather Caprette, Senior Media Developer & Instructional Designer, Cleveland State University
During the first part of this session, you'll learn how to find open source learning resources that are accessible and meet your learning objectives. We'll examine ways that students can create accessible content for other students. In the second part of this session, we'll look at a free, open source technology to create interactive learning resources. You can use this H5P technology to create OER for your students and engage your students with creation of OER for one another. You'll learn where you can download open source technology to self-host, and where you can create a free account to create the resources. You'll see how the content can be embedded in Blackboard Learn's HTML editor, as well as Pressbooks.
Room 317: Integrating Publisher Materials to Support General Standards 4 and 5
- Wendy Tietz, Professor, Department of Accounting, Kent State University
- Indrarini Laksmana, Associate Professor of Accounting, Kent State University
Publisher platforms can offer a variety of instructional materials and course activities to help students meet course learning outcomes. However, just providing students with a link to the publisher materials does not equal a quality online course. In working with two Accounting faculty, the instructional designer created an enhanced organization to integrate publisher materials to support General Standards 4 and 5 within the learning management system. During the presentation, both the faculty members and the instructional designer will share their experiences.
Room 306AB: Putting the Pieces Together: Implementing and Sustaining QM
- Sarah Rutland, Senior Instructional Designer & Manager of Quality Assurance, Cleveland State University
- LeAnn Krosnick, Instructional Designer, Cleveland State University
In this presentation, instructional designers from Cleveland State University’s Center for eLearning will share a multi-faceted approach for implementing and sustaining Quality Matters at this public university. In an environment where there are no mandates on faculty, the Center for eLearning has had to gain momentum for implementing Quality Matters by a variety of means. The Center has found that creating a multi-faceted approach has helped to provide a QM framework within which faculty gain an increased awareness of, and buy-in for, the value of QM Design Standards. The approach is comprised of multiple tools, processes, professional development and challenges that the presenters will share.
