The Cost of Textbooks and OER
What are OER? Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use and reuse at no cost.
From UNESCO: "Open Educational Resources (OERs) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them. OERs range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation."
The DiMenna-Nyselius Library is holding an all day conference on Wednesday, Oct 7 to engage with OER issues with educators around the state.
