Mastering the Search for Open Educational Resources
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern
Event Description
Open educational resources, which are free and openly licensed learning materials, are becoming increasingly in-demand among patrons, especially faculty at academic institutions. This session will provide guidance in how to find openly licensed and other free educational materials, as well as ideas for how to communicate with faculty, students, and other patrons about these materials. Whether you regularly look for OERs or are completely new to the open education movement, this session will provide helpful tips for you!

Learning Objectives:
  • Articulate the value of open education for learning, accessibility, and equity in education
  • Find OERs and affordable learning content to meet specific disciplinary needs
  • Communicate to faculty or other patrons effectively and efficiently about the affordable learning materials that were found
