In addition to our flagship Textbook Success Program, Rebus Community offers in-depth courses, webinar series, and consulting services for faculty, librarians, and institutional leaders. Our programs demystify open publishing, encourage OER adoption, support faculty to author new content, and introduce students to affordable, high-quality materials. Programs are designed to connect participants to a global OER community.
OER Webinar Series
For institutional contexts where an introduction to OER is needed, our customizable webinar series is a great fit. We draw meaningful insight from your institution’s unique context, all while helping participants see the productive connections between OER and student success.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion in open publishing
- Universal design for learning and accessibility best practices
- Open pedagogy and creating OER with students
- Building interactive, engaging OER with H5P
- OER Ancillary Materials
Since every institution is unique, we offer customization. Institutions are welcome to select a suite of tailored online trainings for their particular needs. We recommend beginning with a bundle of at least 3 webinars to offer a thorough and exciting introduction for your community. Rebus Community staff will work with you to help determine which topics may best suit your needs. Please get in touch to request a quote.
Short Term Ancillaries Course
This short course is designed for instructors and faculty who plan to use OER in their upcoming courses. Faculty will be grouped in a cohort based on the type of materials being created. Courses will cover how to create and use materials ranging from slide decks, test banks & quizzes to interactive content like H5P activities.
Rebus Community also provides ad-hoc consulting services for individuals or institutions on topics relating to OER. Pricing for the webinar series and consulting work varies based on the scope of work, the unique needs of each institution, and breadth of services. Rebus services are designed and priced depending on needs.
