"Over the past 18 months, an educator design team in Rhode Island, partnering with the RI Office of Innovation, the Highlander Institute, and the RI Department of Education, created a home-grown online repository of deeper-learning, project-based, open lesson plans and units. Join us to explore the process that the OER (Open Educational Resources) Design Team engaged in to build the repository interface, secure excitement from the broader educator community, ensure quality of content, and balance deeper learning with curricular scope and sequence. We'll also offer a demo of the repository and talk about ways participants can join in the effort to share and receive great locally created content.

Participants will leave with access to a bank of quality, locally created open resources, a deeper understanding of how to engage in an improvement process with a cohort of cross-district educators, and thought partnership on how to grow the use of quality OER in their classrooms."
