OER Handbook for Educators 1.0
In this handbook Welcome to the world of Open Educational Resources (OER). This handbook is designed to help educators find, use, develop and share OER to enhance their effectiveness online and in the classroom. Although no prior knowledge of OER[1] is required, some experience using a computer and browsing the Internet will be helpful. For example, it is preferable that you have experience using a word processor (e.g. Open Office[2] or Microsoft Word) and basic media production software, such as an image editor (e.g. The handbook works best when there is some sort of OER you would like to create or make available to others, but it is also useful for the curious reader. There are several ways to use this handbook, including: You are not expected to be an instructional designer or media production expert to use this book.

Wikiversity Free Online Course Materials | Brain and Cognitive Sciences Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning In the last Digital and Learning Conference that took place in San Francisco, researchers and scholars cited an ever-widening gap between what they considered in-school learning and out-of-school learning.

Structurer son enseignement avec des cartes conceptuelles et des 22 novembre 2009 par Amaury Daele Dans une perspective de conception de l’enseignement axée sur l’apprentissage, nous abordons régulièrement avec mes collègues deux thématiques lors des formations-réflexions que nous proposons aux enseignant-e-s et aux assistant-e-s: la structuration des contenus au moyen de cartes conceptuelles et l’identification et la rédaction d’objectifs pédagogiques. Ces deux thématiques sont fortement liées. La structuration des contenus est souvent la première question que se posent les enseignant-e-s universitaires quand ils/elles préparent un cours. Ce n’est bien sûr pas toujours le cas mais c’est un réflexe universitaire assez typique qui existe depuis au moins 200 ans lorsque Wilhelm von Humboldt a créé la première université de Berlin et a défini une façon de considérer la pédagogie à l’université qui a encore une influence importante de nos jours: L’université idéale, selon lui, se caractérise par l’unité de l’enseignement et de la recherche.
