Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

Debra will discuss how to plant an OER working group that draws from a broad spectrum of participants from your institution, including defeating inertia, where to begin, and hosting events for librarians and faculty as a means of raising awareness about the new possibilities and benefits of OER.

Jennifer, who successfully uses open textbooks in teaching Physics, will discuss how to subversively agitate from within the College to grow support among faculty in the use of open textbooks Jennifer will also counter some of the common misconception about quality and the pedagogical value of OER.
