Design vs. Pedagogical Considerations for OERs

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This presentation examines the tension between design principles for Open Educational Resources (OERs) and the pedagogical needs for class/course materials. Designing OERs for maximal use requires considering several facets including intellectual property concerns, considerations for alternatively-abled persons, and OER usage for learners with limited or no access to broadband and/or limited access to ICTs. However, incorporating all of these design principles can result in learning objects that are less well suited to use classroom use. Ultimately OER creators must consider balancing the needs of incorporating the best practices for in-class or online pedagogy with design considerations for maximizing OER use.
