The OER Implementation Collection is a companion to the UNC digital course enhancement collections. It was developed for faculty, instructors, and librarians in the UNC System by open educational resources (OER) experts from NC State University, East Carolina University, UNC Greensboro, UNC Charlotte, North Carolina A&T, University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and UNC Chapel Hill.
The collection gathers reliable open resources and provides videos of presentations from authoritative speakers to answer the most frequent questions faculty ask about how and why to use OER in their courses. The OER Implementation Collection will provide a guide to finding and using OER for faculty and instructors who are interested in working with the UNC digital course enhancement collections and using other open educational resources in their teaching.
After using this collection, participants will:
Understand what OER are
Describe how OER benefit students and faculty
Find OER that are relevant for their courses
Determine quality and value of OER that they find
Adapt existing OER to fit their courses
Learn how to create their own OER
