Overview:In this video-conference, listeners will hear Dr Tanya Grosz, Director of Educational Programs at the Open Textbook Network, share various creative strategies for engaging multiple constituents on a university campus around OER, including some tried-and-true workshop delivery strategies. Dr Grosz draws on the work conducted at the University of Northwestern – Saint Paul with support from the Open Textbook Network, reflecting on how the support for, and raising awareness of, open education gained traction.
