Topic Details


Open Educational Resources (OER) are becoming a hot topic in higher education both as a resource to support textbook affordability practices and as a flexible pedagogical tool to customize and tailor course syllabi. This presentation will introduce core OER concepts by defining key terms and discussing the purpose and value of OER as an educational tool. We will also introduce the University Libraries’ OER Community of Learning, which will launch in Spring 2021. The Community of Learning contains self-paced Canvas modules supplemented by live online webinars and discussion groups and will give participants the knowledge and support they need to pursue their own OER projects.
This workshop supports the university’s goal to promote the success of all students and to offer high-quality academic and education programming.
