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.

Scott recently finished his Ph.D. in early American literature at Stony Brook University. His current book project, Rethinking Print Media and Nationalism in Early America, concentrates on the underexplored literature of American newspapers between 1776 and 1853. Focusing on issues of asynchronous textual reception, geographic hybridity (distribution and circulation across political and cultural boundaries), and individualized contexts (race, gender, status), his research theorizes the ways in which communal identity formation is affected when a newspaper issue is distributed with uneven speed across varying geographic regions and read differently by contending cultural groups. His M.A. and B.A. are from Tulane University.
