Open Educational Resources at Hunter Libraries

Finding Open Educational Resources (textbooks, courseware, and ancillary materials which can be freely used, reused, and remixed) can be a daunting task.

ACERT Event Capsule – A Domain of One’s Own

As a spectator, it offers a breathtaking array of work from colleagues across the CUNYverse representing a diverse range of disciplines and approaches. Pedagogical projects are warmly welcomed.
