Open Access Week

Did you know it’s Open Access Week?  What is that?

“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.

What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

How can you get involved?

  1. Use Open Educational Resources (OER) – free, openly licensed materials.  Your students will love you!
  2. Publish materials as OER – share your great educational materials (and get publication credit!)
  3. Tell a friend!  The more folks who are involved in the OER community, the better!
