A growing number of faculty are choosing to integrate open-educational resources in their classrooms. College and university faculty can easily integrate digital resources already available from the on-campus library on a simple syllabus with hyperlinks. This workshop provides resources and opportunities for faculty from every discipline to integrate library resources. The cost of textbooks keeps increasing and some of our students experience difficulty affording required resources for class, this syllabus-based OER approach will make the process easier for faculty and students. The goal of this workshop is for faculty to learn about hidden features on the library databases, how these features can be utilized to form an OER textbook-syllabus, and best practices to integrate throughout the semester.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • After the OER workshop, participants will identify how to integrate innovative elements of an OER textbook-syllabus
  • After the OER workshop, participants will know how to identify resources from the library databases to utilize on an OER textbook-syllabus
  • After the OER workshop, participants will know how to adopt and integrate the OER textbook-syllabus in online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses
