Description

Open Educational Resources (OER) provide a unique opportunity to break cost barriers and engage e-learning students with relevant, freely available texts. As both an English instructor and an instruction librarian, I have drawn upon my combined experiences in e-learning, information literacy instruction, and English education to evaluate available OER, select the most engaging materials, and build a composition course that challenges students to question the open education movement. Learn how libraries can support innovative technologies, enhance online learning, and foster the adoption of OER by locating relevant, engaging, accessible materials and supporting faculty involvement with freely available resources.
