Finding and using OER

OER: retain, reuse, revise, remix and redistribute 

In addition to the UA Libraries' unlimited license ebooks, OER textbooks can serve as a viable alternative for some course materials. 

These materials — which range from single lessons to full textbooks — are free for anyone in the world to use, customize, share, and keep. Learn more about Open Education Resources. Instructors also can create their own OER using the UA's Pressbooks platform. A growing number of UA faculty are using open pedagogy to involve students in the creation of OER. Humans R Social Media, by iSchool Assistant Professor Diana Daly and her students, is a great example of this.
