Three tips for implementing Open Educational Resources in the classroom: Opinion

A new article in Contact North’s Stop-Improve-Start series discusses how educators can make better use of Open Educational Resources in the classroom. Educators are encouraged to stop looking for perfect resources that are an exact match to commercial resources, and to instead collaborate with other educators to find the right materials faster. Educators should improve the materials they use, consider the objective of having students use each piece of material, and use OER as a tool that helps students collaborate. Finally, Contact North recommends that educators start to replace resources that cost students money with free materials, begin to create OER resources that meet the needs of their courses, and ask students to create and share OERs.
