All faculty grants to support this initiative have been awarded, however, our staff is happy to support your OER efforts with instructional consultations and connecting you to the appropriate library staff.
Open Education Resources (OER) are openly licensed learning materials made available for introduction and adaptation into classroom instruction. OERs can include entire courses, assignments, discussions, quizzes, syllabi, simulations, textbooks, and modules. The intention of OER is to provide low-cost learning materials to students to enhance the affordability of higher education while also allowing faculty more control over the content of their courses.
Dr. Kevin Meyer
Professor of Economics
Dr. Meyer adopted a new open textbook, incorporated an interactive app, and provided new videos and slides to clarify subjects for students.
Dr. Kim Lacey
Professor of English
All primary texts implemented by Dr. Lacey were links to open resources, students researched their own primary online texts, and instruction was presented in a highly structured weekly format.
