UR faculty members from all disciplines are invited to attend a workshop discussion on textbook costs and the use of open educational resources (OER) as an affordable alternative for our students. The spectrum of OER can include open access textbooks, curated open educational resources, library resources, multi-user licensed e-books, student-faculty digital projects, and more. The workshop will include time for discussion and exploration of OER possibilities at UR and examples of how OER are being used here already. Registration Required.
