Do your students sometimes resist buying and reading textbooks and other course materials? Open educational resources (OERs) such as free or low-cost online textbooks can save students money. There is also evidence that OERs provide deeper engagement with and closer attention paid to course material, which result in more focused teaching and learning.

Come learn about how to take advantage of new strategies and platforms to ensure that our students have access to high quality curricular materials. Library and classroom faculty from across CUNY who have developed, customized, and used OERs will share their experiences. We’ll also learn about resources and support for OERs at CUNY.


Sponsored by the LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable the CUNY Office of Library Services, and Just Publics @ 365 .
