The Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness, as a unit, is a proponent of “open” resources in education. We’ve created a number of digital and print resources that we’ve added Creative Commons licenses, we opened all of the content from our Introduction to Teaching Online course (another course will be open starting in the January 2014, but that will be discussed in a future blog post) and we help to educate the campus community about open access resources.
In 2012, the GMCTE launched our YouTube channel where we have videos on a wide variety of topics including course design, experiential learning, flipped teaching, curriculum renewal, learning technologies, teaching strategies and all of the videos from the Introduction to Teaching Online course. As of the writing of this post, there are approximately 125 videos on the GMCTE YouTube channel, all bearing Creative Commons licenses.
Below is a video of a talk given by our new Program Director, Nancy Turner, when she visited the U of S about six months ago. Her talk, “Open Education as a Disruptive Force in Higher Education” seems appropriate for this blog post.
