Supporting Student Success with Open Educational Resources

Presented by

Michelle Barron-Lutzross, bepress | Elsevier

About this talk

Responding to increased student textbook costs, educators, institutions, and even state legislators are focusing their attention on Open Educational Resources (OER). In addition to saving money for students, OER allow authors and educators to continually adapt their teaching tools, bypass high textbook costs, and create, share, and access global curricular resources. In this webinar, Michelle Barron-Lutzross of bepress Consulting Services will discuss ways to integrate OER into the institutional repository, a strategy that allows libraries to play a pivotal role in the success of OER on campus. She will parse recent research on OER, describe strategies for faculty awareness and engagement, and share examples from successful OER collections in several IRs.
