This 4-session webinar series introduces participants to Open Education and builds a foundational understanding of Open Education Resources and Open Education Practice. Through this series we advocated for the use of OER and OEP and continued to develop the open community in Alberta. All of these sessions were facilitated by Dr. Verena Roberts, a recent graduate of the Werklund School of Education. You can visit Dr. Roberts' blog for more of her insights on Open Educational Practices. This series has been complete in Fall in 2021 and 2022 and we will provide dates and further information the next time the series is scheduled.
This series is facilitated by Dr. Nadia Delanoy of the Werklund School of Education and Jodie Walz from the Calgary Catholic School District. Throughout this series, digital tools will be introduced, demonstrated and innovative practices for their use in the classroom outlined. In Fall 2022, the series will begin on Wednesday October 26 from 4:30 to 5:30 and continue for 5 sessions covering the following topics:
October 26 - Universal Design for Learning
November 2 - Extending Formative Assessment

The Office of Teaching and Learning has regularly supported presentations by scholars within Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary and beyond the university community as well. We have a number of sessions planned for the year featuring Indigenous scholars from Werklund and from the broader community and we will feature them here as details are finalized.
