Why I am For Open Educational Resources - University of Regina

The CTL Open Education and Publishing Program invites you to attend a virtual session November 15 presented by Dr. Arzu Sardarli on "Why I am for Open Educational Resources" via Zoom. Dr. Sardarli will share from his own experiences before open textbooks were available, a time when access to educational resources was limited. His presentation will highlight the importance and value of adopting, adapting, and creating OERs, to the benefit of both students and instructors. Dr. Arzu Sardarli is a professor in physics and mathematics at First Nations University of Canada. Dr. Sardarli has worked extensively with the Open Education and Publishing Program. He and Ida Swan published an open textbook through the Pressbooks platform, entitled "Cree Dictionary of Mathematical Terms with Visual Examples".
