OER and Adult Basic Education
Hi, my name is Jennifer Jennings, and I have been an instructor in the Basic Education department for about twelve years. I teach GED(R) preparation and pre-college transition classes for students who are interested in earning a high school credential for employment or for going on to college programs, many of whom are non-native speakers. I’ve been a part of the Textbook Alternative Committee since its beginning and use open source materials as a way to save my students money as well as customize the content I want for my curriculum. Open source materials appeal to my students because they can access them remotely from their computers and phones, and the various types of material mean that student with different styles of learning are better served.
