Open Educational Resources (OER): For Faculty

A Guide for Educators and Learners

How Can I Participate?

Use: One of the most important ways to participate is to use open educational resources.  Whether you are replacing your textbook or finding excellent assignment guidelines, delve into these resources and provide them for your students. 

Share: Be sure to let people know that you are using open educational resources and direct them to this resource so they too can participate.  Emphasize to your students the importance of supporting open educational resources and how that can impact their wallets.

Add: Look to your own materials and help contribute to the open educational resources movement.  If you have created any material that you feel others will benefit from, donate them to an open educational resource or acquire a Creative Commons license and post them on the Internet.
