Introduction to OER: Making higher education more equitable through free and open resources

Introduction to OER: Making higher education more equitable through free and open resources Online

Open Educational Resources (OER) are freely available and openly licensed educational materials. OER lower the costs of higher education by replacing commercial educational resources. As openly licensed materials, OER allows instructors to remix and tailor the materials to meet their specific course needs. 

This Zoom session will explore OER, the benefits of using OER in a classroom, and provide examples of ways instructors can start engaging with open educational resources in their courses.

Participants will receive the zoom link after registering.
