Open Educational Resources (OER) are gaining popularity at universities and colleges. A growing body of evidence demonstrates the positive effects of OER on student learning and teaching (Hilton 2016). This session provides participants with insights on the impact of OER students’ academic performance as well as teaching, moving the discussion beyond a cost savings argument to demonstrating how OER can encourage more effective teaching practices such as open pedagogy and culturally-inclusive teaching.
