Make Your Courses Affordable with Open Textbooks and Open Educational Resources (OERs)

Thu, Oct 22, 2020 | 1:00 pm

As much of higher education has shifted to online or hybrid learning, students are learning from home or spaces beyond traditional classrooms. They or their families might also be struggling financially as a result of COVID-19. This is the time for educators to consider exploring and adopting digital open textbooks and other no-cost course materials that are more easily accessible and affordable to remote learners. Learn how to discover and integrate these resources into your courses and curriculum.

Participants will be able to define OERs, learn how to find textbooks and other materials, and understand the many ways that Temple Libraries support faculty in their use of open educational materials.

This workshop will be offered as an online session via Zoom. You must register for this workshop to receive the Zoom link via a confirmation email. On the day of the workshop, use the link to join the session. Participants do not need a video camera or a microphone, but will need an audio connection to hear the instructor.
