OERs

UNESCO describes Open educational resources (OER) as “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). The open licensing scheme of choice is often one of the many Creative Commons licences. I believe one barrier to post-secondary education is the high cost of textbooks. Post-secondary educators are slowly adopting OER textbooks in attempts to mitigate the financial burden learns encounter as they pursue their academic goals.

Instead of using open textbooks, I’ve elected to created a number of videos to share with educators and students where I attempt to present central ideas of selected topics, which hopefully are a used as a catalyst for further exploration and discussion. 

I’ve also created a number of PDFs on a number of topics that students and educators may find useful in their pursuit of lifelong learning.
