OER and Public Policy: Overview & Opportunities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From textbook affordability to closing the achievement gap, OER offers a solution to numerous problems faced by governments at the local, state and federal level. A broad-based and growing movement for ?Open Policies? that support open-licensing of publicly funded resources seek to address these problems, and provide fair access to the resources that the public paid to create.

This session will provide a basic introduction to where OER fits into public policy, specifically geared toward conference attendees who are interested in other ?Open Policy? themed sessions. Participants will leave with an understanding of the basic types of OER policies, a roundup of specific examples both in the U.S. and around the world, and where opportunities lie for future expansion. The session will also include recommendations for advocacy strategies, and useful resources. Ample time will be left for questions and discussion with members of the audience.
