Session Description

In addition to the financial expense for students, commercial teaching resources may be unnecessarily restrictive from a pedagogical point of view. Open education resources (OER) provide a cost-free alternative, and provide important academic opportunities. For example, faculty using OER in their teaching can select, combine, and adapt the content to develop the most effective course materials. Using/developing OER can also foster increased student involvement in the course by creating opportunities for collaboration or student-driven content. This session will discuss some of the issues relating to the use and/or development of open education resources such as finding, adapting, or developing high quality content for classroom use, facilitating student engagement, and identifying opportunities for faculty collaboration.
