I picked this selfie of me in a mask because the pandemic has truly been a catalyst for me to explore new technologies. And I am totally going to borrow this challenge for one of my courses! Much like the #artinquarantine activity I have designed it is a fun way for learners to build community and share perspectives of digital literacies and learning in a digital world! #oer #oep #sotl #sotlah #education #openarthistories #arthistory #langara #lida101 #lida101photo
@alenabuis The #scavengerhunt activity was borrowed from Maha Bali in Cairo (but tweaked to avoid forcing learners to use proprietary tools) - See https://blog.mahabali.me/educational-technology-2/twitter-scavenger-hunt-for-digital-literacies-intercultural-learning-may-2-2019/ . Together with the #lida101photo, this is a good way to discover how Mastodon works while building community. Thanks for playing!
@alenabuis I see that you are an Art Educator. With the help from TRU we remixed an OER-enabled 1st year course called "Art Appreciation and Techniques" It is assembled to comprise three micro-courses:
1) Artistic process and visual language - https://course.oeru.org/art101/
2) Artistic media and architecture - https://course.oeru.org/art102/
3) Art in our world - https://course.oeru.org/art103/
We're getting close to launching this open course soon - perhaps your college is interested in joining?
@alenabuis Look forward to your open textbook joining the global inventory. The BCcampus open text initiative is an inspiring exemplar for OER.
@alenabuis Plenty of time 😂 The beauty of open is the freedom for incremental and continuous improvement. Good luck!
