The high-cost of textbooks is one of the factors that affects student learning outcomes and student success. Students avoid certain classes, drop a class, or do poorly when they cannot afford the text for a course. “Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use." (https://sparcopen.org/open-education).
Please join us in the Daley library where our Speaker, Jonathan Lashley, Open Education Fellow, Open Textbook Network, Boise State, will talk about the value of open education resources (OERs) for our students and their relationship to social justice.
A light lunch will be provided.
