This interactive workshop will consider how Open Educational Resources (OER) can alleviate the high cost Indiana University Bloomington undergraduate students pay for course materials (an estimated $1,034 each academic year). Data suggests that students will forgo purchasing expensive course materials, even when they know it will impact their success in the classroom. This session will introduce OER and discuss its benefits, critically think about challenges to OER adoption, and formulate strategies to support IU instructors in finding high-quality OER, adapting them to fit students’ needs, and creating (even in collaboration with students) customized course materials. Please bring a laptop or similar device.
Presentations are from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EST in the Herman B Wells Library in Room E159 (Hazelbaker Hall in the Scholars' Commons).
