Open Doors with Open Resources: Collaborating to Provide OER

Wednesday, February 20 | 2:30PM–3:15PM PT | Pacific Promenade - Poster27
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Colleges and universities are addressing the high cost of textbooks and their negative impact on students by exploring and adopting open educational resources (OER). These are teaching and learning materials published under an open license, making them free and accessible to everyone. In this session, we will discuss NJIT’s Open and Affordable Textbook (OAT) project, a collaboration between digital learning and the library, which has saved students over $300,000 in the two years of the program.

Outcomes: Define and identify OER approaches in higher education * Align OER with course redesigns * Create strategies for encouraging the use of OER
