Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that are freely accessible and licensed in the public domain. They can include anything from full course modules to textbooks, videos, and other materials that instructors can freely access for teaching, learning, and assessing their students. Many instructors want to use more OER resources and move towards creating courses that have zero materials costs for their students, but they often do not know where to start. This panel will present and open discussion on the principles and practices of using OER and creating zero cost courses at Hunter. Panelists will present examples of OER materials already in use, and participants will have a chance to discuss their own ideas and plans for using OER in their courses.
