Workshops and Events
SUNY and CUNY have a strong history of openness and instructional innovation, including the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) to provide measurable impact on student success.
This year invites a large scale-up of OER thanks to the Excelsior Scholarship, which includes with its 2017-18 funding “$8 million to provide open educational resources, including e-books, to students at SUNY and CUNY colleges to help defray the prohibitive cost of textbooks.”
These workshops invite faculty, librarians, instructional designers, administrators, and other campus stakeholders to explore the possibilities of Open Educational Resources more deeply.All skill and comfort levels with both OER and campus technology are welcome.
Join us for an afternoon of technology, pedagogy, and open educational resources. Led by the team from Lumen Learning and SUNY OER Services, you will learn about Lumen’s partnership with SUNY and the innovative OER courseware available at no cost to you or your students.Find out more »
