Learn about Grenzenlos Deutsch, an open online curriculum for beginning German, on next week’s FREE NCompass Live webinar, on Tuesday, November 10 at 10am CT.
NOTE! This NCompass Live will be on Tuesday November 10, due to the Veterans Day holiday. It will be at the usual time, from 10am – 11am Central Time.
Britt Abel, Co-Project Director of Grenzenlos Deutsch and Macalester College faculty; and Louann Terveer, Project Consultant and Digital Initiatives & Scholarly Communication Librarian at the DeWitt Wallace Library, lead this session about the creation of an open educational resource (OER).
