Day 4: Inclusivity in OER
By Morgan Staudinger and Madi Smith
Open education is not just about saving students thousands of dollars on textbook cost. This post intends to dive into the conversation of social justice and learn how OER can be used as a strategy for inclusive teaching. Because OER are openly licensed for revision, they can be adapted to help bring issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion into the learning environment.
Inclusivity should not be ignored when we talk about open educational resources. In this blog post from Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER), gives a great introduction into the topic. Just read the “Overview,” but feel free to browse through the rest of the blog posts as well.
