Library Announces Mini Professional Development Series for Fall 2022

Starting tomorrow, September 28, Ottenheimer Library is starting up our Mini Professional Development Series for Fall 2022. Videos will be posted from September 28 – November 16.

Topics covered include library databases as affordable learning content like Science Online or World Book Timelines to help promote inclusive and diverse perspectives in the classroom. The series also goes over new ways for faculty to consider the diverse learning needs and styles of students by implementing different online learning tools or proper accessibility practices into their courses. Lastly, the MPDS focuses on diverse resources to support faculty and student success including Project CORA, PhET Interactive Simulations, and more.

Signing Up:

To participate in the Mini Professional Development Series this semester you can fill out our registration form. After registering, the library will add you to the OER Education for Student Success organization on Blackboard. From there, you will be able to access the weekly videos, supplemental material, and ATLE quizzes.


This is the fourth semester the library is putting on MPDS.  The Open Education for Student Success Mini Professional Development Series is a collaboration between Ottenheimer Library and ATLE to cover open education topics focused on content discovery, integration, representation, and engagement in 20-minute videos (or less).  We will release videos each Wednesday at 10 a.m. Videos will remain on-demand, making it easy for you to engage where and when it’s convenient. You will also have access to the supplemental materials, such as handouts, transcripts, how to guides, and more. Some of the supplemental material can also be beneficial to students. You can earn 3 points toward ATLE awards for each video you watch (and for completing the video’s corresponding 5-minute quiz on the Blackboard organization shell).

Videos from past MPDS semesters are available on the library’s Youtube channel.
