Learn about the ‘The Pros and Cons of Implementing OER at a Small Liberal Arts University’ on next week’s NCompass Live webinar, on Wednesday, February 16 at 10am CT.
This presentation will talk about my efforts in providing faculty information about how and why we should switch to OER materials for our students. With students not purchasing their textbooks or using ILL or Closed Reserve in place of purchasing their books because they are too expensive or not enough copies available for purchase, it keeps our students from being successful in the classroom and, in turn, causes frustration among the faculty. I will show the evidence and best resources that I have found when assisting faculty with finding OER materials for their courses and other textbook purchasing resources that will help students financially and ensure their success inside and outside of the classroom.
Presenter: Laura Hinman, Library Director, Midland University, Luther Library, Fremont, NE.
