An Open Educational Resources Workshop

Curious about affordable and accessible open course materials for your classes? Want easy to adopt textbooks to help save time for online courses? Come to this workshop to learn more about finding, using, and customizing Open Educational Resources (OERs) as part of Open Education Week 2022

OERs are high quality scholarly materials (including textbooks, learning modules, assignments, videos, and more) that you are able to edit and adapt to fully suit your course. And as a bonus, they are free and accessible for students, which greatly increases textbook uptake for classes.

In this workshop, Scholarly Communications and Copyright Librarian Brianne Selman will go over how to find appropriate OER for your classes, what the possibilities are for adoption and adaptation, and even some starting points if you have materials you want to develop into OERs to share with your colleagues.

Attendance is by registration only, but for those unable to attend more information on OERs can be found at our OER Guide.
