Open Educational Resources (OER)

The Open Educational Resources Seminar trains faculty in the use and development of open educational resource materials for inclusion into their courses.  Use of these resources in courses affords students the opportunity to enjoy zero textbook costs (ZTC).  Additionally, OER affords greater flexibility for faculty to present materials specific and pertinent to their course without waste or expensive textbooks.
