Showcase of Creative Approaches In OER

Composite Activities – “Finding the Error”

Jennifer L. Lapum, Margaret Verkuyl, Wendy Garcia, Oona St-Amant, and Andy Tan

In the following activities, the authors combine three H5P tools to invite students to engage: the juxtaposition tool, the fill-in-the-gaps tool, and the accordion tool. The textbook includes a number of “finding the error” activities that follow this basic format, a design decision that establishes a productive rhythm for learners returning to the text each week.  

These examples appear in in Vital Sign Measurement Across the Lifespan – 2nd Canadian Edition by Jennifer L. Lapum, Margaret Verkuyl, Wendy Garcia, Oona St-Amant, and Andy Tan (Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License).
