Students and OER Advocacy

← Back to list of events

Open Education Resources (OER) remove cost barriers and provide a better learning experience for students who are unable to afford the required commercial textbooks. Student OER advocates directly understand these benefits and can effectively articulate them to their peers as well as to faculty, administrators, and policymakers.

Come and meet two Student OER Advocates who have led the development of an OER Student Toolkit for using at California higher education institutions to share guidelines and best practices for OER advocacy and development. We’ll also hear from the Director of Affordable Textbooks at US Pirgs on concrete next steps for students to take action on their own campuses.

Featured Speakers

  • Cailyn Nagle, Affordable Textbooks Campaign Director, US PIRG
  • Natalie Miller, former OER Student Advocate Lead, The Michelson 20MM Foundation, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, College of the Canyons, 2018 Global OER Consortium Student Award Recipient
