Event Overview
Looking to explore or expand the use of the Open Educational Resources/Materials in your Library?

You’ve come to the right place! This session is by Librarians for Librarians (and instructional designers or faculty development staff) to learn how to gain buy-in from administration and start the OER planning process at your institution. This hands-on workshop will provide you with a toolkit to craft an OER strategy that works within your context. 

Session Outcomes:
 - Plan how to effectively advocate for OER initiatives with Library support at your campus.
 - Identify and assemble intra-institutional teams to support OER initiatives.
 - Use ongoing OER initiatives at other institutions to help develop and enhance your campus OER projects.
