Between the Chapters: Open Textbooks

In this episode of @YearsEd Between the Chapters, Laura chats with Amanda Coolidge about open educational resources (OERs) and the open textbooks. Listen to this book club chat about Chapter 20 (2013): Open Textbooks as we talk about localization of OERs for all teaching and learning classrooms around the world. It’s more than just digital or a platform, there’s such a great ability to see how grassroots initiatives offer ways to provide open textbooks & OERs multiple formats that are not digital to empower educators and learners’ ways to co-create knowledge. Listen in as we get to the root of why open textbooks matter: access for learning! P.s. We love the library.
Pro-Tip: Meet instructors, faculty, and administrators where they are with their teaching and learning practice to build the relationship around open textbooks and OERs.
Questions for the community to ponder about open textbooks & access:
