This toolkit has been designed to equip instructors with the skills they need to confidently find, use, or even create open educational resources (OER). To do this, the book has been broken up into five major sections covering important aspects of working with OER:
- Getting Started
- Finding OER
- Teaching with OER
- Creating OER
In each chapter, learning objectives are provided to explain what the reader will learn and, in many cases, interactive exercises and examples are available as well. The appendices contain links to suggested further readings, additional resources, an accessibility checklist and a glossary. There is also an inclusive design webinar series and a video on improving online course accessibility.
This toolkit was first released in August 2021 and updates will continue to be made as more content is developed and as feedback is received. You can provide feedback on the toolkit by sending an e-mail to Open.Textbooks@uregina.ca or Isaac.Mulolani@uregina.ca.
