The cost of textbooks increases every year, but so does the availability of free web-based texts, materials, and other teaching resources that can improve the learning experience. This session introduces the concept behind OER and introduces efforts on campus to build an OER community. The workshop will also introduce available OER platforms and sites that can be implemented right away. This event is part of Faculty Development Day and is co-sponsored by the Instructional Design Center and the George T. Potter Library.
Presenter: Hilary Westgate, Reference, Instruction, and Outreach Librarian
