Rich Dixon will join us for an engaging discussion on Open Educational Resources. How might we, as educators, leverage Open Educational Resources to differentiate learning and promote educational equity? We will review this question as we examine the current OER landscape and explore a framework to help differentiate instruction to promote educational equity. This interview will highlight the role that OER plays in helping diversify teaching and learning resources to meet the needs and context of all learners by creating a responsive learning environment in person, remotely, or in a hybrid setting.
