Stakes and Stakeholders: OER—Framing the Issues
This book is intended to act as a guide for would-be champions of Open Educational Resources (OER) that anyone—called to action by the example set by the chapter authors—might learn serve as OER champions and guides themselves. The chapters tap into the deep experience of practitioners who represent a meaningful cross section of higher education institutions in North America. It is hoped that the examples and discussions presented by the authors will facilitate connections among practitioners, foster the development of best practices for OER adoption and creation, and more importantly, lay a foundation for novel, educational excellence.will take a decidedly practical approach to articulating the role of academic librarians in the development and implementation of OER on college and university campuses. For this text I co-authored a chapter that outlined the fundamentals of what OER are, what problems they are meant to solve, the new pedagogical approaches they enable, and their potential to positively impact student success. In support of the "open" movement, this book is made freely available online through the publishers website. It was also selected for inclusion in the Open textbook Library, a growing curated catalog of free, peer-reviewed, and openly-licensed textbooks and resources.
