As a teacher, your hunt for current learning resources to use with students is endless. Textbooks can be expensive and quickly outdated, and material from the Internet is often protected by copyright, making it hard to use in classes and online.
Using Open Educational Resources (OERs) is one way to navigate this complex area, while still providing your students with the best educational material.
OERs are freely available learning materials that can be reused, shared and adapted without legal or financial barriers.
By using Open Educational Resources you can:
Tap into global sources of ready-made teaching materials ranging from textbooks, infographics and videos through to lesson plans.
Tailor resources to suit the unique needs of your students.
Build reputation and relationships when you license your own teaching materials for re-use.
Contribute to an equitable education for your students and others.
Share teaching material with all the students in the world.
