If you share concerns about the high cost of college textbooks, find it difficult to find appropriate course materials at an affordable price and are curious about new sources of course content to engage students, attend this session to learn about open educational resources (OER). OER are educational materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses to re-mix, improve and redistribute. Learn how community colleges and our sister institutions are using open education resources, how states are adopting OER (CA and RI) and why textbook affordability is an access and equity issue.
