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

Summary

The information 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.

Also useful to self-learners who want to find high-quality open educational resources in their area of interest.

We will have discussions on the course forum about important issues in the course. We will also have live webconferences to share new discoveries and answer questions.
