Open educational resources

OERs are teaching, learning, and research materials in the public domain or licensed with free and perpetual permission to engage in one or many of the 5R activities (retain, reuse, revise, remix or redistribute).

​The Library has designed this self-paced module to foster understanding of OER in the broader context of open education practices. You may access the OER Awareness Module via MyDevelopment.

The Searching OER Resources will provide you with an initial guide on how to search for and discover OERs that might be of interest to your area of study and teaching.

If you need assistance from the Library to locate OERs, please submit your request using the OER support form.
