Finding Openly Licensed Content for Your Classroom: Business and Economics

In a recent survey of University of Guelph undergraduate students, 57% of learners reported that they do not purchase the required resources for their courses, a finding that has serious implications for student success, learning outcome achievement, and course design. 

Open Educational Resources (OER) provide an alternative to commercially published textbooks and other course materials. OER are not only free of cost, but they are editable and adaptable to ensure that you’re able to provide the best curricular content for your course. Whether you’re looking for an open textbook or you’d like to curate a number of resources to align with your learning outcomes, we’ll help you find resources that are free and accessible for all of your students. 

In this session, participants will learn how to find and evaluate OER that are appropriate for use in their teaching. Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of the variety of sources and collections that exist for OER in Business and Ecoomics, as well as several tools they can use when evaluating content for quality and relevancy.

Please bring an internet enabled laptop or a tablet to this workshop.
