Quality, Equity, Affordability: Why Open Educational Resources and Why Now

The Association of American Colleges and Universities is hosting a free webinar on OER and its positive effects on higher education.

“Open educational resources (OER) are educational materials, from single lessons to entire textbooks, that are free for faculty and students to use, customize, and share. Their adoption and utilization in course settings have been proven to be a viable affordability strategy for higher education; however, recent research is also revealing that OER can also positively influence quality and equity concerns. Panelists during this webinar will share the outcomes that have been attributed to OER, while also showing how OER can be leveraged to encourage more equitable, inclusive, and diverse classrooms.

There will be time for Q&A during the webinar. The webinar will be recorded, and the recording will be available online. “
