Open educational resources are “Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium – digital or otherwise – that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions” (UNESCO, 2019). Like many educators, I believe one barrier to post-secondary education is the high cost of textbooks. OER textbooks are slowly being adopted by faculty in their attempts to mitigate the financial burden learns encounter as they pursue their academic goals.

I’ve created a number of videos and other resources for other educators and learners to use.
