With the importance of quantitative skill development in biology curricula clearly articulated in Vision and Chang (AAAS, 2012), numerous educators have answered the call to create and facilitate innovative data-centric pedagogies to promote data literacy and skill development in their classrooms. Data-centric curricula using authentic inquiry are now readily available, allowing faculty to find and adapt resources for use in their classroom without reinventing the wheel. Many of these data-centric resources are nested within the educational paradigm of Open Education Resources (OERs), and while these resources are freely accessible adoption and adaptation of these resources is not quite ubiquitous. In this session you will learn about where and how to find OER data-centric resources, what it means to go through the OER lifecycle of a resources, and how to get credit for your educational scholarship by posting your adaptations of these resources on QUBES. Come ready to explore the data-centric resources on QUBES and start thinking about how you would Use, Adapt, Refine, and Share your adaptations with the QUBES community and beyond.
