Open Education Resources (OER) 

How are LMU faculty using open educational resources (OER), library resources, and other freely available content to replace traditional textbooks? What are the opportunities and challenges that faculty face when making these changes for their students? At this interdisciplinary panel, two faculty from CSE discuss their experience adopting OER textbooks alongside three faculty from Art History who used funding from the Open & Affordable Textbook Initiative departmental grant to collectively reimagine course materials for five courses. 

Panelists: David Berube, Clinical Associate Professor of Physics; Joshua Hallam, Assistant Professor of Mathematics; Amanda Herring, Assistant Professor of Art History; Kirstin Noreen, Professor of Art History; Melody Rodari, Assistant Professor of Art History  

 Moderator: Jamie Hazlitt, Collection Development Librarian and lead for LMU Library Open & Affordable Textbook Initiative
