Free the Textbook with Open Educational Resources
Your students are under stress—high textbook costs are leading many to delay or not even purchase required texts at all. Result: poorer grades, dropped classes, and lower retention rates...as educational inequity rises.
What can instructors do about it? Adopting or adapting Open Educational Resources offers all-inclusive, openly licensed, always-accessible course materials at no cost to students! AND using, modifying, or even contributing to OER materials helps build a more open, equitable, and sustainable future for higher education.
Join the University Library for a one-hour workshop on OER where we'll go over:
- Issues, concepts, and fundamentals of OER
- How to find and assess OER materials
- Identifying OER in your discipline—a hands-on exercise
Learn how you can incorporate OER into your curriculum and improve student success!
