Free Textbooks?! Using Open Educational Resources
Wednesday, November 11, 10:30-11:30
Advanced Technology Lab, Shain Library
Do your students complain about textbook costs? Are you frustrated by the format, content, or examples in your textbook? 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 – Karen Gonzalez Rice and Joe Schroeder – and explore high quality examples. You will leave with strategies for finding, evaluating, and integrating OER in your spring courses!
