Abstract

What are open educational resources? Why is the OER movement growing in popularity in higher education? Who is using and creating OER? Why? How can you use what you already know to assist faculty in adopting and creating OER, and what else do you need to learn?

In this session, Dr. Watson answers the above questions. In addition, he discusses the cadre of support for textbook adoption, instructional design, innovative pedagogies, and course redesign efforts that support faculty in UGA’s OER initiative.
