OER for Social Justice
OER for Social Justice is a three-year initiative to support the creation and use of open educational resources (OER) across four California private institutions.
With $1,533,300 in funding from the U.S. Department of Education, librarians from LMU, Saint Mary’s College of California, Santa Clara University, and the University of San Francisco will recruit, incentivize, and prepare up to 12 faculty teams to adapt, create, and publish OER that integrate diverse, equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist resources into high-enrollment courses across multiple disciplines.
OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use. They can include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.
