Open Educational Resources + Dual Enrollment Published

(View Complete Item Description)

This practice brief provides guidance to help K12 and community college dual enrollment program instructors and administrators identify and implement programs using open educational resources (OERs). This practice brief focuses on how OERs can remove potential barriers to students’ access to higher education by promoting textbook affordability for all students. As high schools typically cover the cost of textbooks and other course materials, the costs of college textbooks may deter high school students from considering dual enrollment programs, particularly low-income students. The integration of OERs in dual enrollment courses may help mitigate this barrier.
