This presentation will provide a brief overview of Open Educational Resources that are available to any instructor at any institution. Considerations for finding, adopting, and integrating open educational resources will be discussed, and demonstrations of how easy it is to link a course to an open educational resource will be covered.
Attendees will be provided with a collaboratively generated list of top online resources that instructors can use to increase engagement with their course materials, and have the opportunity to create their own Creative Commons licensed material.
Interesting resource suggested by Ilene Frank "iterating toward openness"
