Session Description
At the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, a collaboration between the College of Education and the University Library aims to increase the representation of Texas's Rio Grande Valley within social studies curricula. Whose History? is a multi-stage project of student-developed place-based learning, resulting in the creation of OER lesson plans. This presentation will explore the project's genesis, implementation, educational perspectives, final digital product, and reflections from the project's facilitators.
