Can adopting open educational resources make education more accessible to learners and empower educators to share?


The course is a three-step process to adopting open textbooks for educators. It is a modified version of the Find, Author, and Share Open Textbooks course.

The three major steps are:

1. Discovering open educational materials and selecting appropriate ones based on the various criteria;

2. Following an adoption process where you work with other stakeholders including students to promote a best-use model, and;

3. Sharing your knowledge of discovery and adoption of open educational materials with others in your discipline, campus, or learning community.

The course can also be useful to self-learners who want to find high-quality open educational resources in their area of interest.

We will have weekly discussions on the course forum about important issues in the course. We will also have bi-weekly live video conferences to share new discoveries and answer questions. These conferences wil be archived for those who cannot attend live.

Watch this video to hear more about it.
