Open Educational Resources (OER) are free teaching and learning materials that allow instructors to modify, adapt, and reuse content for academic purposes. While traditional copyright and licensing practices for commercial textbooks create barriers to student access, using OER guarantees that students can access high-quality, customized course materials on the first day of class. In this interactive session, attendees will be given an introduction to OER and open licenses, learn about resources for finding and using OER across disciplines, and explore ideas for engaging students in the knowledge creation process through open pedagogy. 

The session will be led by Lauren McKeen McDonald, Open Education Librarian. It is open to Northwestern faculty, students, and staff.
