Livestream of Beyond Free Textbooks: How OER Addresses Access, Inclusion, and Academic Excellence by Jasmine Roberts

← Back to list of events
This livestreamed address by Dr. Jasmine Roberts from The Ohio State University will evolve current open educational resource (OER) discussions that typically center on cost-savings themes to a conversation about how using these resources improves pedagogy and addresses diversity and inclusion themes related to teaching in higher education. More specifically, this talk will address how OER improves the conditions of marginalized student and faculty populations through more inclusive and equitable practices. The keynote will also challenge the audience to think more critically about traditional academic practices, procedures, and infrastructure by encouraging the adoption of open education philosophies at the institutional level.
