Open Educational Resources: New and Expanding Needs

As the price of both tuition and textbooks rises dramatically, students, educators, and even legislators are increasingly turning to Open Educational Resources (OER) for a more sustainable alternative. Institutions interested in launching an OER initiative must consider:

  • How the latest OER research applies to your institution and students
  • How to plan an OER initiative, including securing funding, finding campus partnerships, and sustainability
  • Where to find existing OER materials on campus
  • Technical and support needs for the new materials.

In this webinar, Tessa Handa of bepress Consulting Services provides an overview of the OER landscape and how library services can serve a variety of OER materials. Tessa's presentation includes a diverse set of examples of successful OER initiatives.
