February 1, 2023, 1:00 - 2:30 PM EST  

  • Session 2: Project Design: Hands-on training aimed at supporting effective project design to collaboratively identify, evaluate, organize, remix, create, and share OER.

Participants are required to attend the three 90 minutes webinars, and complete approximately five hours of practice activities to find, curate, publish, and share their OER project.
