DOER Fellows Renewable Assignments

DOER Fellows Renewable Assignments

Renewable assignments provide students with opportunities to engage in meaningful work, add value to the world, and provide a foundation for future students to learn from and build upon. Renewable assignments are possible because of the permission to engage in the 5R activities granted by open educational resources (OER). Renewable assignments are an alternative to traditional, disposable assignments, which students throw away after they are graded.

The 2017 – 2018 Designing with OER (DOER) Fellows created the following renewable assignments:

Anthropology

Astronomy

Biology

Communication

English

English as a Second Language (ESL)

History

Psychology

Theater
