On February 26 and 27, 2015, Portland Community College hosted Quill West and Christie Fierro as keynote speakers at our first two regional OER conferences. If you weren’t able to attend you can watch their keynotes here!

OER is deeply integrated into her communications and public speaking courses, including having students involved in selecting content and creating learning assessments.
