Designing a Queer-Inclusive Human Sexuality Course Using OER

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As an instructor for Human Sexuality, I have had a difficult time finding a traditional textbook that contained the content and language I wanted so that my course could be inclusive of queer and trans bodies and experiences. This summer, I redesigned my course to feature OER rather than a traditional textbook while participating in an OER Learning Circle hosted by the Minnesota State System. In this session, I will walk through the steps I took during the design process, including setting course-level and module-level learning objectives, creating new assessments aligned with the objectives and supported by the OER, and collaborating with peers in the learning circle. Additionally, I will discuss how you can determine the level of queer and trans inclusion in your sexuality and gender content, how to find new sources for OER related to sexuality and gender, and how to create a sexuality course that is not only queer-inclusive, but intersectional, centering folks marginalized by racism, ableism, and classism, among other systems of oppression.

Learning Outcomes:
1) Identify new sources for Human Sexuality OER
2) Critique the level of inclusivity in existing Human Sexuality course instructional materials
