Unlocking the Classroom: Maximizing the Potential of Open Educational Resources
As more research is conducted on the impact open educational resources (OER) have on the cost of higher education and on learning outcomes, it’s becoming increasingly clear that OER offer an effective alternative to traditional textbooks. However, use of OER remains relatively uncommon at four-year colleges and universities. In this presentation, David Wiley addresses challenges of OER adoption, discusses the transformational experience of creating renewable assignments that allow students to create and openly share content, and predicts what lies ahead for open education.
