OER and Articulation?October 8, 2009
Two articles in the September 2009 issue of the Senate Rostrum newsletter address the topic of open educational resources, open textbooks, and articulation.
Barbara Illowsky authored the first article, titled: “And the Textbook Is … Free? Introduction to Open Educational Resources,” in which she explains how faculty can impact educational costs for students by adopting open textbooks.
Richard Mahon, Ken O’Donnell, and Dawn Sheibani assuage faculty fears about the transferability of courses that use open textbooks in their article titled: “But Will It Fly? OER and Articulation.”
