From Textbook to Homework: A Collaborative Journey in Developing Our Spanish OER Projects with LibreTexts
March 7, 2024 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm GMT
In this presentation, four instructors from California community colleges will discuss their transition from traditional commercial textbook bundles to Open Educational Resources (OER) and innovative homework solutions in Spanish language instruction. They will focus on three collaborative projects supported by the Academic Senate of California Community Colleges Open Educational Resources Initiative (ASCCC OERI) and LibreTexts: Entrada Libre (2020), Tarea Libre (2022), and Tarea Libre 2 (expected summer 2024). Attendees will learn about the collaborative process, from conception to implementation, and the challenges faced during the development of the materials.
The speakers will share valuable insights into OER development and offer actionable takeaways. The presentation aims to renew enthusiasm for reshaping the future of Spanish language education through innovative solutions. Emphasis will be placed on the creation of open and accessible resources that align with the ASCCC OERI IDEA framework of inclusion, diversity, equity, anti-racism, and accessibility.
