The #GoOpen movement has impacted many conversations relating to digital resources for schools and public libraries. What is this OER phenomenon? How can a teacher/student/patron access these items and how can they be added to coursework or a collection ? This webinar will focus on the premise of OER (Open Educational Resources) and provide an opportunity to discuss with other participants how an OER can benefit and enhance a course or collection. Users will be provided with a "starting" point of OER references that can be used for education.

In addition, we sometimes give presentations by simply reading aloud academic-style text or—just as painful for the audience—reading aloud blocks of text right off the slides. This seminar adapts principles of plain language to the context of speaking, covering not only wording, but also structure and integration with visual aids.
