Meet Dr. Sarah Krejci
Dr. Sarah Krejci presented at the 2020 Going Global With Digital and Distance Learning" USDLA International Conference
A collaborative course redesign approach for non-major Environmental Science incorporating Open Educational Resources (OER)
"OER usage in place of high-cost course materials can eliminate bottlenecks to undergraduate academic success in science courses where students already struggle to meet learning outcomes," said Dr. Krejci, Assistant Professor of Biology and Integrated Environmental Science. An Environmental Science course at Bethune-Cookman University was redesigned utilizing OER which increased academic success and achieved high satisfaction among faculty and students. “It was an honor to represent B-CU at the USDLA conference and share the collaborative efforts of our faculty to improve our course designs using innovative learning strategies that have dramatically improved student satisfaction and academic success," she added.
