During Open Education Week 2019, Musselman Library's Department of Scholarly Communications educated the campus community about issues of textbook affordability and about the development of Open Educational Resources. This poster provides basic information about what Open Education is and how it is a response to the high cost of course materials, which creates barriers for many students who cannot afford to purchase their books. Open Education seeks to create equitable access to all course materials and transform traditional ideas about pedagogy.


This poster was on display on the Main Floor of Musselman Library during Open Education Week, March 4-8, 2019.

The 2019 poster was derived from Elizabeth Bein's 2018 edition. You can view the original poster on The Cupola.
