Finding Open Educational Resources (OER) (Q/O)
According to the 2016 Babson report "Opening the Textbook: Open Education Resources in U.S. Higher Education": "Only 5.3% of courses are using open textbooks (includes public domain and Creative Commons licensed).... The barriers to adopting OER most often cited by faculty are that “there are not enough resources for my subject” (49%), it is “too hard to find what I need” (48%) and “there is no comprehensive catalog of resources” (45%)."
This workshop is designed to help faculty members locate existing Open, quality, peer-reviewed OERs to begin re-building content for a course.
