Introduction to OER Adoption Virtual Workshop 

March 27 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

This virtual workshop on Wednesday, March 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. will introduce faculty to open textbooks — a type of open educational resource (OER) — and the benefits these textbooks offer: affordability, pedagogical practice, student learning, and engagement. Faculty are then invited to engage with open textbooks by writing a brief review of a book in the Open Textbook Library.

Several UWM courses use Open Textbooks, removing textbook cost as a barrier to student success. For more information about UWM’s Open Textbook and OER initiative, see the guide to Open Educational Resources.

For a self-paced training course on OER at UWM, see Open Textbooks and OER Training for Instructors.

Please register to attend. Participants are asked to select an open textbook for review. Instructors who complete the review process will be eligible for a $200 stipend.  Stipends are awarded as an S&E transfer from GPR/101 to GPR/101 lines only.

Register for the virtual workshop.  Please use this form to RSVP by Tuesday, March 26.

Contact Kristin Woodward (kristinw@uwm.edu) for additional details or to request accommodations.
