Designers for Learning Webcast 12

This Designers for Learners webcast was broadcast live on Wednesday, December 4, 2013. The webcast focused on opportunities to develop service-learning and Open Educational Resource (OER) projects to support General Educational Development (GED) test preparation. Jennifer Maddrell was joined by guests with extensive experience in OER development, including Ronda Neugebauer of Lumen Learning http://www.lumenlearning.com, and Quill West, OER Director at Tacoma Community College (http://open.tacomacc.edu).

In the past few months, we have received inquiries from nonprofits in need of instructional design help to support GED test preparation, including resources for learners, as well as for staff and volunteers who work as tutors. In 2014, the requirements for the GED test will change significantly from the existing 2002 version of the test. In addition to changes in the content and test items, all students will be required to take the test via computer vs. pencil and paper. Instructional materials are needed to support a range of subject-matter, including math, science, social studies, language arts, and computer use. Within this webcast, we contemplated the adaptation, development, and use of OER as an alternative to existing commercial offerings, such as those in the GED marketplace (http://www.gedmarketplace.com). Please see the text-chat transcript and Google Doc with links and resources mentioned during the recording.
