Moving to online or hybrid teaching models exposes the challenges of getting the necessary materials and readings to students. Print-only formats, publisher paywalls, and copyright restrictions are a few of the barriers that instructors and students encounter when trying to access scholarly content. When compared with commercial texts, Open Educational Resources (OERs) offer significant cost savings for students. For faculty, they offer the ability to reuse and customize accessible content to suit curricula and learning outcomes. In this session we will explore OERs, looking at what they are, where to find them, and how to incorporate them into existing courses.
