My OER project
I am currently editing an Introduction to Sociology textbook offered via e-campus Ontario.
What prompted you to become involved in OER?
What prompted me to become involved in OER? One word: Cost! I wanted to reduce the cost associated with taking my class. Like many instructors, I was already using many ‘free’ materials in my courses (e.g., Ted talks). Researching a free or near-free textbook was the logical next step.
What excites you most about your OER project?
I am currently editing an Introduction to Sociology textbook offered via e-campus Ontario. Over time, using this free textbook will save our students thousands of dollars.
Can other instructors interested in OER reach out to you?
Yes, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
