The Integration of Open Education Resources into your Library
Dialogue around Open Education Resources (OER) has been on the rise over the last few years and increasingly so from within the academic library community. Academic libraries are a natural fit to be leading in this space on campus, and this forum will directly address ways in which you and your library can enhance and encourage the development and usage of OERs on your campus. This forum will aim to address many questions including the financial implications of and cost models for OER, how library’s can be the creators of OER and how OERs are being perceived by faculty and students.

Speakers include:
C. Quill West, Open Education Project Manager, Pierce College District
Kristi Jensen, Program Development Lead for the eLearning Support Initiative University of Minnesota Libraries
Shan Sutton, Associate University Librarian for Research and Scholarly Communication, Oregon State University
Nicole Allen, Director of Open Education, SPARC
