Using Open Education Resources - Taking the Plunge without Drowning

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/14/2022)
Presented by Grace Leu Burke, MS, MT(ASCP)

Adoption of open education resources (OER) has been embraced by universities as an alternative to standard textbook material, reducing student costs. This presentation will explore how OER can be used in medical laboratory science curriculum without completely eliminating our beloved reference books.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Define what constitutes OER material and how it has been currently adopted
  • Analyze current Medical Laboratory Science curriculum which may benefit OER usage
  • Develop tools towards OER implementation, using a small step progression
