Open Educational Resources (OER) are commonly thought of as free or very low cost textbooks and course materials. The "open" in OER means that these materials are openly licensed, not under traditional copyright restrictions, so they can be freely shared, copied, stored, changed, and updated or remixed to fit new purposes.
Applications for 2023 Library OER Grants are now being accepted! Contact Kristin.firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about OER funding opportunities! New funding is also announced from agencies such as Open Oregon on a regular basis.
|Student voices are the most important ones in these conversations. We need to hear from students on how you access your course materials, what barriers you face, and how we can make it better.||Faculty can get involved by changing their course materials to be more accessible to students. This includes universal design and affordability. The following resources are here to help and support faculty in this area|
Applications are accepted in winter term. You can apply to:
Take the Oregon Tech Open education course (Asynchronous)
Participate in the Open Educational Resources Team
