The increasing availability of open educational resources (OER) in digital formats offers an important opportunity for faculty to interact with students about the use of these resources. My own experience in both developing and utilizing OER’s in my classes affords me a unique perspective integrating them into the classroom. In particular, I hope to raise and address an important instructional design question for OER's in digital formats: what do we mean when we ask students to "read"? What technological and pedagogical challenges must we plan to confront when assigning reading in a digital format? I will share SoTL research and my own experiences in this area.

I'm interested in embodied cognition, experiential learning, and coaching for faculty and educational developers. Happy to chat with anyone about ideas from my book, Minding Bodies: how physical space, sensation, and movement affect learning (WVU Press, 2021).
