Open Educational Resources (OER): OER for Teaching and Learning

How OER Benefit Teachers/Lecturers

How OER Benefit Students

  • Unlike traditional resources such as print textbooks OER can be edited, modified, and maintained by students throughout the course of the semester. 
  • The digital nature of OER means students can highlight, add notes, comments to their course material to enhance engagement.
  • OER can be accessed both on campus and remotely.
  • OER ensure fair access to all students, they are freely available and remove the financial burden of traditional resources.

Student advocacy can make a significant difference when working to promote OER use on campus. In this session, we talked about strategies for engaging students leadership to support OER adoption and creation. Our guests talked about how student engagement got started on their campuses, effective strategies for building connections that last from year-to-year, and the impact of engaged student leadership on student savings and learning.
