The Library invites University of Scranton Faculty to join us Thursday, March 5th, at 10:00 am during Open Education Week (March 2-6) for coffee and a light breakfast in the Weinberg Memorial Library room 305 to discuss implementing Open Educational Resources (OER) in the classroom. The Library defines OER as any freely accessible or appropriately licensed, rigorous academic material that is a suitable replacement for expensive textbooks, readings, and other types of required course materials.
Discussion will include an introduction to OER, how to locate OER resources within the Library’s collection and online, and suggestions for how you can replace costly textbooks and other resources with OER. Librarians will also answer questions about OER and the Open Educational Resources Grant, available to full-time faculty and accepting applications until April 17th.
