Welcome and Introduction: Come for the Student Savings... Stay for the Academic Freedom
Open Educational Resources are gaining traction in higher ed because they lower the cost of attendance for students and enable faculty to fully customize course content. A growing body of research also demonstrates that use of OER is associated with improved student outcomes and retention. This presentation will consider how ideas from the open education movement intersect with creative instructional design.

Creating Augmented Reality Experiences
While Virtual Reality completely immerses the user in a computer-generated environment, Augmented Reality permits the viewer to see a virtual overlay on the real world. Text, still images, video clips, sounds, 3D models and animations can all be virtual objects accessible in the overlay, ideally coexisting within a real-world environment. Learn how to create these experiences in a hands-on workshop.

Beyond resources: Open Educational Practices
Open educational practices are pedagogical strategies that use the affordances of open licenses to get students involved in creative activities with real-world audiences. David Wiley is credited with coining the term "open pedagogy" and contrasts this type of assessment with “disposable assignments” that have no value once a grade is assigned. We'll use this workshop time for hands-on practice applying open practices to an assessment that you currently use.

While it's easy to get swept up in what AI is not (sentient machines replacing people) it's just as important to know what it is (intelligent machines remarkably good at one thing). We'll also take a closer look at what AI means for education and research, the jobs it will likely eliminate, and the new ones it will likely create.
