Open Course Design: Learning through Creation

←Back to list of resources

The process of creating Open materials is an excellent learning experience for students. Students analyze and synthesize information during the creation phases, collaborate during the editing and review phases, and contribute to the larger educational community by creating freely available materials.

This website presents a course design strategy where students create an open textbook and ancillary material including a test bank and study resources.

The course design focuses on having subsequent classes of students build upon the work of previous classes. The site also presents individual components of this strategy for incorporation into any class design.
