Faculty Guide to Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide is designed to help Wichita State faculty find, create, evaluate, and incorporate open educational resources for instructional and training purposes.


KBOR will be sponsoring free workshops for faculty to learn more about the OER initiative and have an opportunity to engage with OER text.  This 90 minute workshop touches on three main concepts:

1. Raise Awareness on issues relating to students regarding access & affordability in higher education

2. Educate faculty about Open Education Resources and how they can help address some problems that our students face. 

3. Offer an opportunity to Engage with a text from the Open Text Library. 

If you've been wanting to have an opportunity to learn more about OER and how it can impact your courses and your students, register at the links below for one of our workshops.  Registration is limited to 30 participants for each workshop.  Click the link below to register for the workshop that fits with your schedule.
