Faculty Helping Faculty - Leah Carmichaels’ OERs

Faculty at UGA and around the world have begun to teach remotely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. UGA faculty experienced in online teaching have responded by making their fully-captioned instructional videos publicly available as open educational resources (OERs) to help faculty make the shift to online instruction.
 
UGA lecturer in the Department of International Affairs and UGA Online faculty fellow, Leah Carmichael, has joined other UGA faculty in making online course media publically available to help other faculty. Carmichael has created 15 online course videos, each explaining a different aspect of international relations such as the laws of war, theoretical paradigms, and how the economy should operate. 
 
Faculty can browse the catalog and link to the videos that they feel will help them efficiently teach online and keep their students engaged.

As UGA has switched to online for the remainder of the spring semester, access to Carmichaels’ successful course material will provide additional faculty to faculty support to help ease the transition. 

You can access Carmichaels’ course presentations on Kaltura Channel “Global Issues Resources” or on UGA Online’s YouTube channel.

If you are a UGA faculty member interested in contributing open educational resources, please email us at online@uga.edu. You can also access faculty OER resources on the UGA Online website.
