Two years ago, AlphaPlus organized an advisory group to explore Open Educational Resources (OER) and establish criteria to build a collection for the field. The result is hundreds of FREE units, courses and instructional support materials (with more items being added) that you can use for reading, writing and math instruction, in addition to specific topics of interest to adult learners.

During the session we will introduce you to the collection and demonstrate how it fills a gap, look at a few example resources that rival paid resources and discuss priorities for adapting and modifying specific resources for your use in online and in-person settings.

Join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to explore the library and discuss how OER can enhance your practice. 

This FREE session will be 1.5 hours long and ASL interpretation services will be provided.

Come along to learn, share and get tips to add to your digital resources toolkit.

Planning a Lesson (PAL) project: What’s involved in creating an LBS lesson that flows?

Tuesday, June 18, 2024, 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) lesson is a window / microcosm into the complexities of and opportunities for teaching adult learners. There are a number of LBS-specific considerations that factor into the planning of a lesson in a blended learning context. 

During the session we will share how the Planning a Lesson (PAL) working group explored the intricacies of planning a lesson with a realistic eye toward digital integration, while co-creating resources to assist in planning a lesson that makes for better learning and flow. Practical examples, tips and lesson plan resources will be shared.

Check out the Past Sessions section of the website for presentations, recordings, additional tips and resources shared by guest presenters.
