Are you thinking of utilizing open education resources (OERs), in lieu of a textbook? Do you want more information of how to start the process? Are you wondering about the benefits and barriers? If you answered yes, this interactive presentation is for you. Participants will discuss redesigning a course using OERs, examine benefits and barriers, and review student and faculty feedback about the pros and cons. This session is designed for the person relatively new to the OER process. The presenters will present lessons learned and discuss the steps involved in compiling OERs.
