PAMLA 2022: Open Educational Resources (OER) in the French and Francophone Classroom (roundtable)

The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has grown steadily due to the rising cost of textbooks and the unstable financial situations of students, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the relevance and authenticity of conventionally published materials is often called into question. As a result, instructors increasingly turn to OER to meet these needs.

In this roundtable, presenters share how they use OER in French and francophone language, literature, and culture courses. They discuss how OER create active student-centered learning experiences and explain how this work has impacted their pedagogy. Participants may demonstrate how they successfully implemented OER as the main material for a pre-existing course, presenting supplementary materials they incorporated alongside OER. Instructors may address challenges that arise from using OER. Participants will provide links to useful OER materials and databases and offer practical tips for planning and assessment to better connect curriculum and pedagogy to students’ needs. 

Please submit abstracts  directly to PAMLA for this roundtable discussion (5-10 minute papers) : https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/S/18605
