Call for Curriculum Designers and Presenters: ACRL RoadShow on Open Educational Resources and Affordability (Deadline May 1)

(via ACRL)

ACRL is accepting applications from prospective curriculum designers/presenters to create and deliver a new ACRL RoadShow to support librarians in finding, using, and developing open educational resources (OERs). This introductory level, day-long workshop will be intended for academic librarians and library staff integrating OERs into their institutions and developing OER initiatives. The curriculum designers will plan and develop learning experiences for face-to-face and online learning intended to build librarians’ knowledge and use of open education practices. The in-person workshops will be offered upon request on a licensed basis, as with the existing ACRL RoadShows. In-person workshops may also be offered at ALA and/or ACRL Conferences. Additional online offerings on open education would be part of ACRL’s regular e-Learning program and could include a multi-week asynchronous course and one or more topical webcasts of 60-90 minutes each in an interactive online classroom.

The application deadline is May 1, 2019. A selection committee with representatives from the ACRL New Roles and Changing Landscapes Committee and ACRL staff will consider applications and conduct telephone interviews. Applicants will be notified by June 1, 2019. Complete information is available on ACRL Insider.
