Together, we will view a live webcast, “Open for Students and Educators: Open Educational Resources Level the Playing Field." This Open Access Week event is hosted by the JMU Libraries’ Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the JMU Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Steering Committee. Please contact Liz Thompson (thomp3ea@jmu.edu) or Alyssa Valcourt (valcouah@jmu.edu) with questions.

Webcast description by the presenter, Sara Benson:

Open educational resources (OERs) are not usually a hard sell for students. But what about educators? How do they benefit from having access to resources that are licensed openly? And how can we, as librarians, guide faculty in adopting and adapting OERs? This free webcast will cover essential OER questions and topics, including:

• What does OER mean?

• How is OER helpful not only to students, but to educators as well?

• Locating and adapting OER (or how to interpret Creative Commons licensing attached to OERs)
