Description

Are your students burned out from passivity in the classroom and tapped out financially from paying too much for one-size-fits-all textbooks that they rarely read? Open Educational Resources (OERs) can help by providing low-cost, customizable learning resources. Instructors can also use OERs to create innovative activities that support active learning. This interactive session will cover some of the basics of finding and using OERs followed by a workshop on creating assignments for student-generated OERs.
