Session 3F | Assessment Toolkit: Assessing and Advancing the use of Open Education Resources
The OER Assessment Toolkit was created to help UT Austin's incoming OER Fellows assess their classes' use of free course materials. The Fellowship supports faculty in using OER materials in their classes. Working with the Assessment Librarian and OER Librarian, we created a toolkit that uses assessment tools to measure the impact of free course materials. In the presentation, I will go over assessment and OER methodologies used in developing the toolkit and the possible impact of using an assessment toolkit. OER and assessment further equitable learning, which needs greater development in higher education institutions like UT Austin. Therefore, creating an OER Assessment Toolkit helps instructors comprehend the impact of implementing and promoting free course materials in their classes. The goal of the presentation; is to present about OER assessment characteristics, to teach about the toolkit's role in facilitating assessment for faculty and staff, and to show staff how using free resources like toolkits furthers equitable learning.
