High-quality, peer-reviewed, Open Educational Resources can also be found all over the open web. But which ones are the best for MU instructors and their courses? Learn about all of the work that is happening on campus to support instructor use and creation of OERs and how you can incorporate library resources within your courses.  

240819Diverse Objects, Diversity Discussions: Teaching Strategies with Material Culture

May 18, 3:00-3:50 pm, room 44, Cornell Hall

Museums, libraries, and archives are places where students can meet the world’s many cultures and explore ethnic and gender diversity in their own communities. In this interactive session, participants will be encouraged to craft their own strategies for teaching using artifacts and primary sources from several collections on the University of Missouri campus. Professionals from several different campus collections will also offer their perspectives on teaching and assignment strategies, and the types of collection materials available. This session may be a first step for faculty interested in setting up consultations with librarians, archivists, or curators who can contribute to their courses.
