We in SUNY 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 in 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.

· Interact with faculty and librarians across SUNY who have first-hand experience with OER
· Understand the distinctions between traditional and Creative Commons copyright
· Discover OER materials in your subject area
· Apply OER content to help meet your course outcomes

All skill and comfort levels with both OER and campus technology are welcome.
