Medical OER Partnership Meeting at Webinar

December 7, 2011 from 12pm to 1pm

Hi Marie,

Jacky Hood suggested I contact you regarding the ODG's Mentoring program.

As you may know, ODG has implemented this program over the past 2 years.

However, we want to hold a debriefing session to determine how best to proceed.

Would you please provide your email address so I can send you the dates and times that we hope to schedule this meeting?  

Thanks,

Dolores

Hi Liz,

Thank you for all the helpful information. The reasons that I join this community because I think the textbooks are pretty expensive for our students, and all not all the topics that I am looking for are available from the publishers. I am teaching Electronics and related materials, I hope I could be able to find some materials related to my fields and also network others to share ideas.

 

Thanks!
