Breaking Down the Barriers of Affordability & Accessibility: B-CU’s Open Sources Project - MLS 131 & 132 By: Dr. Adelia E. Parrado-Ortiz

Subject Area

Foreign Language Pedagogy

Abstract

The future IS HERE! It is important to put into practice instructional open sources as an innovative way to integrate technology-enriched learning content in face-to-face, hybrid, and/or fully online classes. The teaching and learning process is affordable and accessible. As a result, the high cost of textbooks is avoided. Students are provided with multiple resources for the learning experience. For the instructor, the World Wide Web is a great tool to enhance your teaching and transition from the textbook to the open sources materials adaptable to any of the instructional formats: face-to-face, hybrid, and/or fully online teaching. This presentation will showcase a case-study to illustrate how this ongoing process is shaping a new way to collaborate among colleagues to create and adapt open sources materials for your courses.
