Whether adapting an existing OER, transitioning your course materials into the Open, or creating an OER from scratch, you will likely be using materials created by others. Because Open doesn't just apply to the finished resource but all of the elements within the resource, it is important to ensure that everything you include in your OER respects licensing requirements. In this session, we will walk you through some strategies for finding open content to adapt or include within your learning resources, as well as best practices for attribution.

“As part of Congress, the OTESSA [Open/Technology, Education, Scholarship and Society Association] Conference encourages researchers and practitioners to share their scholarship on the complexities that technology and open educational practice raise for education, society, and scholarship, as well as to come together to build connections, collaborations, and critical conversations at this year’s conference.
Starting with a critical look at how Open Educational Resources (OERs) can open doors to college affordability and student success, Robin and Rajiv will expand the conversation to move beyond cost-savings into a broader focus on access and equity. They will give examples of teaching practices that center learner agency and voice, catalyze the open sharing of knowledge, and demonstrate the value of higher education to students, faculty, and the wider community. Robin and Rajiv will explore how Open Education can shape a hopeful and humane vision for the future of higher education.
The open house will showcase 450 new resources and demonstrate how to access the VLS and Central Vitual Learning Platform.
