The Utah Academic Library Consortium (UALC) and Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN) are co-hosting a virtual symposium March 20–25. The event will feature sessions on building OER initiatives, how-tos on PressbooksEDU, a showcase of OER projects created by Utah faculty and staff and a Q&A session where participants can chat with project creators.
