Full Description of the Session

If you want to create OER to customize your course content, start small. In this session, you can explore using Choice Boards for presenting course content. Since 2015, the presenter creates OER and will share her experience; realizing that moving from adapting OER to creating OER is a journey started with small steps. Choice boards can provide the bridge from adapting to creating. Why choice boards? Choice is a key component of learner-centered teaching. Providing choice enhances learning by increasing engagement, motivation, and can support communication and collaboration. Choice boards support the Universal Design for Learning. In the session, you will explore the benefits of using choice boards to promote interactive integrative learning through an example from an interdisciplinary course. Next attendees will see a demonstration of how to create a choice board. Then attendees will be encouraged to practice using a choice board with a Google document. The session will conclude with feedback, questions, and discussion from attendees. A list of resources will be available. The session is designed for intermediate or advanced attendees.

Special Zoom Requests

I will use breakout rooms and polls
