The Library will be hosting a workshop about open educational resources. Faculty and staff are invited to attend and learn about Open Educational Resources (OERs), which are an emerging trend in textbook and course material publishing. Attendees will find out how the library can help integrate them in your classes. OERs represent a different approach to traditional expensive textbook publishing by allowing students free access textbooks and other instructional materials available online. This session will explain what OERs are, where to find them, and how to best use them in your courses.
The workshop will take place in the Main Library Makerspace from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Our first selection in February is Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. Pick up your copy at either campus while supplies last. And then meet fellow readers at our Book Clubs and let’s talk!
Come to either campus on the following dates to join the discussion:
Monday, February 26th – 3:30-5:00 OR Wednesday, February 28th – 1:00 to 3:30
And, oh yeah, food will be served at each of the Book Club gatherings. Come and ENJOY!
Please read “My Immigrant Students: Newcomers construct their new lives, one challenge at a time,” by Elena Gorokhova, an HCCC Associate Professor of ESL. Professor Gorokhova wrote this poignant and inspirational article while on sabbatical leave last semester. It features five of her former HCCC students and was published in the February 2018 issue of New Jersey Monthly (available at the HCCC Libraries). The article is linked here, along with the magazine’s cover page, where photographs of the students also appear.
