Description

Textbooks: expensive, static, out-of-date, longtime vexation to students (and libraries). Led by a geeky librarian, and backed by student government, some instructors at Lane Community College are doing something about it. This presentation will describe the OER Faculty Fellowship, which incentivizes instructors to drop textbook requirements and incorporate free, online, Open Educational Resources instead. The fellowship’s flexible, asynchronous, and self-paced model could also be applied to other faculty development initiatives-information literacy, perhaps?
