Economics: Open Educational Resources

What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

Open educational resources (OERs) are teaching resources available in a variety of formats that have an open copyright license. This allows anyone to use, adapt and share them as needed. There are different types of open copyright licenses that allow a range of permissions to the user. Many of these are administered by Creative Commons

Open educational resources and open pedagogy have many benefits for both faculty and students. 

  • Allowing faculty to adapt teaching materials to match the content of their courses
  • Providing students with the opportunity to create, collaborate and share their learning
  • Lowering the cost of education makes it more accessible and affordable for all
