Did you know that the average undergraduate student spends $1,240 on textbooks and learning materials per year? Or that 65% of students do NOT purchase a textbook because of the cost?
Open Educational Resources (OER) help solve the problems of inequity and inaccessibility in education. OER are open access educational materials, including textbooks, videos, etc., that instructors can use at no cost. OER makes courses more accessible to all students and offers faculty more flexibility and control over their course content.
Learn about how you can use OER in your curriculum at our upcoming workshop:
Leveraging Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Pedagogy to Support Students & Promote Educational Equity
Tuesday, October 26, 12-1pm
At this workshop, led by Daniel Verbit, MLIS, and Larissa Gordon, MSLIS, M.ED, M.A., of the Thomas Jefferson University Libraries, you’ll learn how to search for OER and how the library can help you find the right materials for your courses.
