Summer is the perfect time to explore open education resources (OER) for a course you want to rework or improve. Maybe you’re unhappy with your current textbook, maybe you’re planning out a course you haven’t taught before, or maybe you just want customize your course resources to better match what your students need access to. No matter the reason, summer is a great time to get this work done! Librarians Kate Hess and Nicole Forsythe, as well as other colleagues across the college, are ready to help you. Give us a call or an email and we’ll be happy to consult with you on how to proceed with your specific information needs in finding and using OER for your course.
Also: if you plan on converting a whole course to OER, you may want to apply for a 1 credit hour stipend. See this document for details.
