DepositIntroduction to Open Educational Resources

This very broad introductory workshop was held at Howard-Tilton Memorial Library at Tulane University as one in a series of four workshops held during Open Access Week 2018. Over the course of the workshop, we reviewed core terminology, collaboratively developed an understanding of the potential purpose of OERs, explored a selection of OER repositories for content that may align with faculty teaching needs, and briefly reviewed resources available through Howard-Tilton Memorial Library to support faculty wishing to develop their own OERs.

DepositEducation in the Present Tense

Adding to the long list of “post” conditions, the term “post-internet” offers a fairly recent attempt to characterize a certain social, political, historical, and material condition that artists, curators, educators, and critics are currently working with. For some, it provides a language to articulate the complex entwinements between online and offline, while for others, it presents yet another blasé attempt to excite the neoliberal art world. This paper was presented at a symposium whose aim was to offer entry points to the post-internet logic, its conceptualization, and its critique by examining its (ab)uses in artistic, educational, and curatorial practices. We ask, why and how to engage with or disengage from the post-internet and what happens when the post-internet enters the institution.
