Download pdf | Full Screen View

Summary:
Through a series of workshops and incentives faculty will learn the benefits of adopting open educational resources (OER) in their classroom in place of costly publisher provided textbooks. Participants will commit to adopting OER in their course for at least three semesters. Indian River State College librarians know the value of OER having only taught credit courses using OER materials. Furthermore, librarians specialize in collecting, storing, describing, and evaluating information. Knowledge of OER and access to over one million library licensed scholarly materials makes a librarian the best person to implement college-wide, innovative OER adoption. This application was successful in receiving the Gladys Williams Wolf Endowed Teaching Chair in Communications on Monday, April 4, 2016.
