Adam Papendieck and Mike Ndimurukundo of Tulane University will be kicking off the 2013 HSI-Cert series with a mini-course on Open Education on Wednesday, February 6th from 2-5pm at Kigali Health Institute (KHI) auditorium.
The course is designed to introduce participants to open educational resources, open online courses and the potential such resources hold in helping lower barriers to quality higher education and increasing opportunities for continuous professional development. Interactive presentations will be followed by a practical session designed to engage faculty with open educational resources and to help them actually enroll in an open course of their choosing.
Tulane will also make a brief presentation on the planned Faculty Development Institute which will continue to deliver the HSI-Certificate series in 2013, offering an updated slate of courses to HSI-Network institutions.
Prospective participants are encouraged to prepare for the mini-course by reviewing the resources and videos assembled on the course page on the HSI-Net website. Access to a laptop will be required to complete the practical lab session in the time allotted on Wednesday. Participants may also complete the practical lab component independently after the course if they prefer.
All faculty and staff at HSI-Net institutions (NUR, KHI, SPH and FOM) are welcome and participants who complete the course activities will receive a Certificate of Participation from Tulane
