Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The MSU Libraries’ OER Program was created to address affordability, access, equity, and faculty innovation, leading to overall student success. Since its launch in the Fall 2019 semester, the OER Program has grown considerably, with 27 courses in 272 sections and 70 instructors utilizing these materials in the Spring 2021 semester. This presentation will highlight the success of the OER Program at MSU, including the services that we are offering to faculty, such as print-on-demand services, open textbook publishing, copy editing, and accessibility checks. We will also discuss our partnerships with the student government and other units on campus. We will also talk about the OER Award Program, an incentive program for instructors that encourages and supports the use of openly licensed materials as a pathway to increase student success.
