Newton, MAMay 9, 2017 – Open educational resources, open source, open education, online content: how does anyone keep it all straight and do they really affect student engagement? On May 18, educators will be able to delve into the topic in a webinar sponsored by itslearning and moderated by Education Week magazine.

Andrew Marcinek, former open education advisor for the U.S. Department of Education, and Michele Eaton, director of virtual and blended learning for the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township in Indianapolis, will share their insights and experiences on the topic of open education resources, including:

§ OER –its history and its vision

As a former open education advisor for the U.S. Department of Education, Marcinek focused on expanding and accelerating the adoption of open education policies within the department, encouraged the expansion of such policies across the federal government and supported initiatives that dramatically increased the curation and sharing of open educational materials by educators throughout the country. Eaton’s expertise comes from her role as the director of virtual and blended learning for the M.S.D. of Wayne Township in Indianapolis, Indiana. There, she focuses on staff and curriculum development for the district's virtual school (Achieve Virtual Education Academy) and blended initiatives.
