Hosted this one with my colleague Camille Arpin:
Midi-Éductive - Éveil aux ressources éducatives libres : pourquoi et comment les intégrer à notre enseignement
Here’s the Genially we’ve used as support during the session:
Midi Éductive — Éveil aux REL par Camille Arpin sur Genially
And some links I’ve shared during the session:
Liens Midi Éductive

We will likely share video excerpts from this session.

As planned, topics were:

  • Intro to OERs and their relevance in teaching
  • Creative Commons Licenses and the 5Rs
  • Finding OERs
  • Sharing OERs
  • Options for OER adaptation (including localization) and creation (including prototyping)

Interactions with the 17 participants focused on a perceived difficulty in finding OERs and on some subtleties related to CC licenses (link to moral rights in our legal system as well as in France, what “NC” actually restricts, etc.).

Some context:
The session was part of our contribution to Quebec’s OER Leaders Network, funded by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur (Ministry of Higher Education). That network involves about 40 learning pros from universities and colleges across the province. The agreement was that we would go through the “Bootcamp” version of CC’s certification program together and, in exchange, we would all host CC-related activities during #oeweek. Several of these activities were local to network members’ institutions.

Thanks Alex, your badge is in the [e]mail!

Reminds me of a lawyer joke… :wink:

I’m testing out the system, but these are real badgeable activities, according to the criteria.

I hosted an Ask Me Anything open discussion, held here in OEG Connect. I had hoped this format would offer something different from the synchronous activities that filled most of the week.

The discussion thread included questions from six different people, I hopefully provided useful responses. Plus, as noted, there were 7 other H5P events/workshops/presentations during Open Education week, indicating this is a topic of interest.

I also hosted an open drop in lab for annotating the UNESCO Recommendation on OER, but did not attract any visitors! I did spend the time adding notes representing OE week content to the International Cooperation Aaction area

And just to demonstrate that everything works badge-wise, here is the public view of my OEWeek Events Host Badge in Badgr

But wait there is more!

I downloaded my OE Week badge and was able to import it to a passport account I still have from my previous work on the Ontario Extend project for eCampusontario… Badging works as advertised, they are very portable

Hi, Alan! Super belated, but I think @Shinta should get a digital badge for organizing the CCCOER panel on open education leadership we did on Monday of OE Week! :slightly_smiling_face:

(Recording here, if anyone is interested!)

Oh I agree that @shinta deserves a badge and will make it happen.

This badge process was an experiment where people would reply to the criteria in message at the top of this thread with their response, becoming their evidence link. You’ve done all that is needed and we ought to broaden it to suggest badge earners as you have done.

Thanks, as always, Cynthia!
