The Power of Openness: Improving Foreign Language Learning Through Open Education

The spirit and practice of sharing is gaining momentum and producing excitement, from high school teachers trading ideas and lesson plans with their peers in online communities, to professors making their courseware open to the public. This symposium seeks to bring together foreign language teachers, instructional designers, and educational administrators to discuss how to produce a new generation of foreign language materials called Open Educational Resources (OERs). OERs are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits sharing, accessing, repurposing and collaborating with others. Come learn how OERs enhance foreign language learning by leveraging the power of openness.
