Blog series to highlight digital tools for teaching and learning

The Office of Open Learning presents the campus community with a series of gifts in the form of a 12-post blog series that will run from Dec. 4 to 19, published on the Office of Open Learning blog.

The “12 Gifts of the OOLidays” are designed to highlight helpful digital teaching and learning tools, showcase open resources developed at the University of Windsor, and explore some important considerations for navigating our information-abundant digital world, says Ashlyne O’Neil, learning specialist in the Office of Open Learning.

“Given the rapidly changing nature of higher education, our increased efforts toward equity and inclusion, and some of the excellent work being done at our own institution, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to help our campus community explore some of these ideas before the Winter 2024 semester,” O’Neil says.

Posts will be released daily, and topics will include:

  • generative AI
  • open educational resources
  • the Humanizing Digital Learning micro-program
  • perspectives on Indigenous Knowledges and open practice
  • equity in educational technology
  • information abundance
  • online academic identity using WordPress
  • useful open and free technologies including Pressbooks, H5P, and YuJa
  • an online course, “Empowering Bystanders Against Anti-Black Racism”
  • Land acknowledgements
