Welcome to Open Education Week
What if there was a way to provide students course materials at little or no cost while ensuring those materials were exactly what the faculty wanted? Welcome to the world of Open Education. The goal of Open Education is to create, curate and distribute learning materials in ways that make them accessible, usable and improvable by others.
Open Educational Resources or OERs are an example and are utilized globally to facilitate open education initiatives. The library leads an effort to engage the campus community in open education conversations, including the benefits, discovery and customization of open materials.
We invite you to join us this week as we focus on OERs: the facts, the myths and OERs currently in use at Michigan Tech. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
