Session 15C | What Students Want: Advocating for OER Amid Other Course Material Models
The students, faculty, and administrators at every school come together to create a unique campus environment. Because each school is unique, every college and university has different course materials initiatives, some of which encourage widespread adoption of open educational resources and some are moving to automatic billing models like Inclusive Access or IncludED. No matter the initiative or the program at your school, faculty and administrators should always come back to this question: what will benefit students the most? The flexibility, affordability, and pedagogy behind open educational resources are able to provide students with course materials that fit their wants and needs. In this workshop, we will discuss how to bring the course materials conversation back to students and advocate for free, open materials on any campus.
