Open Education Resources (OER)
OER is a movement in response to the rising costs of textbooks at double the cost of inflation. Faculty engaged in the use of OER will have the financial, technical and editorial supports. The focus will be on shared expertise and peer-based learning to disseminate curricula and support a learner-centric approach to education.
- 11 Faculty and Staff members trained by the NDUS Open Source Book Training in Oct at Valley City State University.
- Committee has been formed to ensure best practices in implementation of Open Education Resources---Members include: Dean of Libraries and Information Resources (co-chair), Associate Provost (co-chair), UND faculty members, Vice-Chair of the University Senate, Students, Director of the Center for Instructional and Technology and her course design personnel and Director of the Office of Extended Learning and her administrative staff.
- No faculty will be required to use Open Source Textbooks---Participation is Voluntary. Focus will begin with instructors who teach large enrollment classes to ensure larger savings for students.
- Multiple major research universities have been creating and using Open Source Materials including MIT, University of Minnesota, University of Oregon, University of Utah, SUNY and Georgia System.
