  • 30-minute explorations of topics related to OER production and adoption.  Topics might include student- and faculty-led campus initiatives, the integration of OER production into teacher training, obstacles to OER adoption, evaluation of OER for promotion/tenure, publishing platforms, and issues of accessibility.
