SUNY and CUNY have a strong history of openness and instructional innovation, including the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) to provide measurable impact on student success.

This year invites a large scale-up of OER thanks to the Excelsior Scholarship, which includes with its 2017-18 funding “$8 million to provide open educational resources, including e-books, to students at SUNY and CUNY colleges to help defray the prohibitive cost of textbooks.”

These workshops invite faculty, librarians, instructional designers, administrators, and other campus stakeholders to explore the possibilities of Open Educational Resources more deeply.

All skill and comfort levels with both OER and campus technology are welcome.
