Free Textbooks?! Using Open Educational Resources
Friday, February 19, 9:15 – 10:15 AM
Advanced Technology Lab, Shain Library, Lower Level
Back by popular demand! Open Educational Resources (OER) are shared teaching, learning, and research resources that are free for anyone to reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute. Using high-quality, peer-reviewed OER instead of costly textbooks has several advantages, including: equitable access to learning materials, increased student achievement, and complete flexibility. In this workshop we will hear from faculty who are using OER and explore high quality examples. You will leave with strategies for finding, evaluating, and integrating OER in your courses!
