The topic of the second cohort meeting is “Why OER?”
In session two we will discuss the pedagogical value of using OER instead of textbooks, and also how the openness of OER creates a different relationship to education than zero cost. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about other faculty’s experience of the OER conversion process. We will also raise the issues of student access and usability questions when thinking about OER pedagogy. Prior to this session we encourage faculty to think about elements of their existing syllabi that could be converted to OER.
