Open Educational Resources (OER): OER at CSCC

This Research Guide will assist faculty in learning about and searching for open educational resources (OER).

Open Texts @ Columbus State

Open Texts @ Columbus State offers the opportunity for faculty to have time, library support, and technical support to adopt, adapt, or create open educational resources for their courses. If you are curious about what OER material might already exist for your subject area, please explore the Discover OER by Subject and Discover OER tabs of this guide. Keep in mind that open textbooks and course material can be revised, mixed with other open resources, or updated if they aren't exactly what you need for your course. 

Interested faculty are encouraged to speak with an OER Faculty Fellow or the OER Librarian to find out more about this initiative. In order to participate, the proposed project should significantly reduce or eliminate student textbook cost for the course. Faculty interested in participating in  Cohort 3 of the initiative should submit an intention form to Rachel Dilley by September 27, 2019. Supporting documentation, including the Open Texts @ Columbus State Faculty Intention form, is below.
