Dec 10 Webinar: OER Research on Librarians and Open Textbook Adoption

December 1, 2014

Have you been asked by your college administration or colleagues about open textbook usage and perceptions? Recent studies have shown that awareness and usage of OER by faculty is not yet mainstream. Come and hear results of surveys conducted by the OER Research Hub on open textbook usage by faculty and librarians including understanding of open licenses, quality, and how librarians can inform open textbook adoptions. In addition, we will hear from the SPARC organization about the direct connection between open access and open education and the important role that libraries have in curating and promoting open educational resources adoption in the classroom.

Please join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) for this free, open webinar and a chance to ask questions of our two expert speakers.
