Take the Leap Into OER!

When: Thursday, February 29, 2024
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM
Where: Claire T. Carney Library, Office of Faculty Development
Description: Have you considered whether your traditional textbook is the optimal centerpiece for your teaching and your students' classroom experience? Open Educational Resources (OER) are textbooks and other teaching materials that are openly licensed and free to use. OER have gained traction for their cost-savings to students, but there are numerous other benefits such as their customizable format and flexibility for sharing and remixing. Adopting OER is also an opportunity to promote equity because students have day one, consistent access to their materials. No more waiting for a late Amazon delivery or fumbling with login credentials for your students to get what they need for class. Let's talk about the basics of the OER model, the benefits, and resources for finding materials within your subject.
