Many educators are facing the challenge of teaching in online or blended contexts for the first time, however, few institutions have professional development resources aimed at helping with the transition to online and blended teaching contexts. CU Open is Carleton University’s online repository of creative commons licensed Open Educational Resources. CU Open includes a set of modules focused on blended and online teaching aimed at helping institutions create their own professional development opportunities. These freely available and completely modifiable modules have received international attention and are being leveraged at numerous colleges and universities.The purpose of this workshop is to equip participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to determine to what extent these modules would be useful at their institution and to develop a initial plan for their use.
