OER, Open Pedagogy, and Equity

With Open Education Resources:

  • You can customize the course to match/fulfill the learning objectives/outcomes of the course in a way that a publisher text wouldn’t. 

  • You have the ability to remix and add your own content as one cohesive text and easily make it available in your Canvas course. 

  • The most current event examples can be used in classes where cultural and news-cycle references are relevant. 

  • You can include a range of expert voices and expand diversity in the readings. 

  • Students can access your textbook for free and will have it the first day of class.

  • Local, state and nationwide research connects Open Education Resources with reducing disproportionate impact and supporting student success.
