Teaching and Learning with DPLA Resources

October 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Are you “hungry” for resources that will inspire rich discussion in your classes? Join the DPLA Outreach & Assessment Working Group and Joanna to explore the Primary Source Sets from DPLA, including this example – “Feeding the Hungry with Food Stamp Programs.” In this session, we’ll chat about the structure of the existing Primary Source Sets and use framing questions to see what might be missing. Joanna will provide an OER Commons template for you to curate additional resources and provide feedback on what else could enrich these sets. Bring your appetite because we’ll be providing a lot to consume.

Joanna Schimizzi is a Biology teacher in North Carolina and a Professional Learning Specialist with ISKME. While getting her Master’s in Education from Northeastern University, she became extremely interested in classroom culture and student identity. This led her to work with ISKME and OER Commons to support educators in finding Open Educational Resources (OER) so that resources can be modified and remixed to include a wider variety of perspectives and experiences. Joanna is mom to two boys and lives with her husband in a little town outside of Charlotte, NC.
