Student working on a research project.

Collaborative Learning Experience With Open Educational Resources In Health

In academia there is a movement to adopt open educational resources (OERs) to reduce cost for students and to focus on open pedagogy. This experience you will work to identify resources to use in future course creation in the undergraduate public health program. You will provide feedback and document your experience in collaborating on OER course creation. This project may result in publications and scholarly presentations based on the process of training students about OERs, the collaborative experiences in working with a professor to identify content that is interesting to students, and opinions on collaborative creation of content.

This is a great opportunity for students who want to pursue a career in public health, health behavior, education, or higher education.
