The Science Forward OER is interdisciplinary and focuses on scientific skills common across all fields of science. The OER (cuny. is/scienceforward) features 17 custom-made videos paired with lesson ideas and suggested readings. It is meant to encourage an active, flipped classroom and can be customized to specific student audiences. The CUNY OER Initiatives have allowed us to add materials and accessibility improvements to the OER including new videos and audio descriptions for all videos. We will demonstrate these materials and facilitate a discussion about how to use the OER in a variety of classrooms and student responses to the curriculum.
