Creating an Open Educational Resource: Exploring Ways That Libraries Can Support OER Publishing
Hoover, Jeanne; Seibert, Heather
Open Educational Resources (OER) have been gaining momentum in higher education and K-12 schools. OER are free, and often customizable, resources that can be used as textbooks or supplemental materials in the classroom. Librarians have been enthusiastic advocates of the Open Education movement and many of us have been asked to support faculty and students using these materials. Additionally, we have been tasked to assist faculty with revising and creating OER. In response to these questions, the presenters published an OER to better understand the publishing process. This poster will cover the process and tools that can be used to create OER. We will also cover lessons learned, helpful resources, and ways that librarians can support OER publishing.
Presented at the North Carolina Library Association Conference in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
