Conversations on Teaching: Introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER)

3/3/20 11:00 AM - 3/3/20 12:00 PM
Location: Grand View University - Rasmussen Center, Room 208 (CETL)
More and more of our students are having difficulty keeping up with the rising costs of textbooks and course materials, and we know this a significant barrier to student success. This session explores an alternative to costly materials-Open Educational Resources. OERs are freely available and almost always peer-reviewed sources, and they can be accessed and even remixed for free as well. We’ll look at what OERs are out there, explore some of the major OER platforms, and think about the possibilities for courses that would contain no additional costs for their materials.
