In this presentation, we will look at how the members of the OERu consortium, an international group of institutions of higher education, have worked to develop a first-year curriculum and credential consisting entirely of open courses. This credential is designed to be accepted internationally, by all member institutions and any others who want to make use of it. To achieve this goal, we have designed courses and assessments, created transfer and articulation guidelines, and relied upon expertise both of the partner institutions and volunteers committed to the mission of the OERu.

We will review the unique open model employed by the OERu, and also some of the challenges that the OERu partners have had to address along the way, including alignment of course content, requirements of national curricula, and development of satisfactory measures of successful course completion. We will also explore the impact of these efforts on the individual institutions themselves, and how their work in OER has led to a consideration of Open Educational Practices in their own course design, pedagogy, and the empowerment of their students.

Talk to me about anything. I will try to keep up. But job-related: prior learning assessment, adult learners, competency-based education.
