This half day workshop provides an overview of the current open textbook and OER landscape, including information about copyright, fair use, open licensing, strategies for identifying open content, and models for compiling open content for class use. We will also devote time to hands-on exploration of existing open resources that could be used in your course or discipline. If you have been thinking about reworking your required readings and are leaning toward more open materials, this workshop is the perfect time to explore the possibilities. You will get the most out of this workshop if you come with a specific course or set of courses in mind. All individuals who teach at the College and feel they would benefit from this workshop are welcome, regardless of rank or type of appointment.


Workshops were offered on May 17 and 18, sponsored by the Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning
