Introduction to OER Adoption Virtual Workshop - UW MIlwaukee

This virtual workshop on Wednesday, March 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. will introduce faculty to open textbooks — a type of open educational resource (OER) — and the benefits these textbooks offer: affordability, pedagogical practice, student learning, and engagement. Faculty are then invited to engage with open textbooks by writing a brief review of a book in the Open Textbook Library. Several UWM courses use Open Textbooks, removing textbook cost as a barrier to student success. For more information about UWM’s Open Textbook and OER initiative, see the guide to Open Educational Resources.
