Excerpt from the slides and presenter's notes:

Excerpts from the slides:

“Open educational resources are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student or self-learner.”

Open Textbooks: Traditional textbooks with lessons, exercises, and reference materials.

Many instructors also want better materials:

➢ So all students can participate.

➢ So their voice can shine through.

➢ So their discipline can be represented.

➢ So they can use new technologies and pedagogies.

Karen Bjork

Open access textbook publishing initiatives not only provide libraries the opportunity to recast their longstanding mission to facilitate research and remove barriers to information they also impact student affordability efforts.

Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts: Building Support for OER from Existing Services on Campus
