SP22 Workshop - Finding Free Course Materials: Textbook Affordability VS OER

Selecting high-quality OER

Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources presents the following webinar: Faculty & Librarians Selecting High-Quality OER

In this webinar, we heard from librarians and faculty who are working together to support the selection and adoption of high-quality open educational resources to enhance teaching and learning.  Leveraging the key role and skill set of librarians for curating high-quality and openly licensed resources can give faculty time to focus on the pedagogical enhancements available through OER adoption in their courses.
