OER and Textbook Alternatives: Intro to OER

What is OER?

"Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge."

Open pedagogy allows students and professors to become partners in education giving students a sense of ownership with the work they do in class and will allow them to create skills useful for our rapidly changing job landscape that requires students to adapt quickly.
