Finding OER to Use in the Classroom: The Sciences

Access to electronic versions of textbooks got you down? Looking to switch up your course materials for the winter semester? Consider using open educational resources (OER)!


OER are educational materials (including textbooks, modules, streaming media, simulations and much more) that are an exciting alternative to commercially published textbooks and other course materials. OER are not only free of cost, but they are often 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, this workshop will equip you with tips and best practices on how to find OER that are appropriate for use in your teaching. Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of the variety of sources and collections that exist for OER in the Sciences, as well as several tools they can use when evaluating content for quality and relevancy.
