From the author:
For the past few years, I’ve been creating an Open Educational Resource website with the complete curriculum and all prep, assessment, and discussion materials for 4 separate Women’s and Gender Studies Courses. I’m sharing this now in case you know anyone who might find it helpful as they’re looking for online resources.
The site has been funded through multiple Open Oregon grants and the content can be widely adopted, altered and shared. The courses are designed around conversational learning, both on-campus and long distance. I work from an intersectional feminist perspective, so there’s a lot of emphasis on the shared patterns between different oppressions.
