Practical OER: Transitioning from Theory to Implementation
Everyone can agree that Open Education Resources are a good thing: decreasing the cost of textbooks can make education more accessible for more people. The 2018 SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference will focus on the ways in which staff at colleges have actually implemented OERs, and how the library has been involved with that process. Presentations will include information about cross-campus collaboration, how to identify faculty needs, facilitating an open campus, and managing custom textbooks. This conference’s presenters, who hail from SUNY schools as well as national and international institutions, will provide attendees with information about ways in which the community is making progress to save students dollars and create a culture shift in OER adoption, use, and sharing.
Technology requirements for attendance: Computer, internet connection, microphone/speakers (headset recommended) or telephone. Zoom will be used for this conference and is free for use by attendees.
