Educators have taken advantage of the Internet to share their resources with colleagues around the world. There is now an increasing amount of free online resources to support open education. OpenStax College, for example, will soon offer free peer-reviewed textbooks on different subjects.
Why do educators embrace open education? What are open educational resources (OER) and where are they located? How could instructors at Western benefit from the abundance of OER?
Michael McNally, a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Information & Media Studies, will introduce the audience to open education and facilitate discussion of how OER can be integrated into teaching and learning.
