Students are under stress—high textbook costs are leading many to delay or not even purchase required texts at all. Result: poorer grades, dropped classes, and lower retention rates...as educational inequity rises.

What can instructors do about it? Adopting or adapting Open Educational Resources offers all-inclusive, openly licensed, always-accessible course materials at no cost to students!

Join the University Library for a one-hour workshop on OER where we'll go over:

  • Issues, concepts, and fundamentals of OER
  • How to find and assess OER materials
  • Identifying OER in your discipline—a hands-on exercise!

Learn how you can incorporate OER materials into your curriculum and improve student success
