If you take or teach courses at Ursinus, please complete LIT’s  Student Survey or Instructor Survey to share your experiences using traditional textbooks and open educational resources.

The Affordable Learning Working Group and LIT have been celebrating International Open Access Week. In case you’ve missed it:

We are also excited to share that Ursinus has recently joined the Open Education Network in efforts to increase and improve Access, Affordability, Inclusion, and Academic Success through open education.

The genesis of OEN goes back to 2012 at the University of Minnesota when Dave Ernst started the Open Textbook Library (OTL). Here are more details about the OEN History and Guiding Principles.

The OEN’s  Open Textbook Library (OTL) currently offers 1107 open textbooks on a variety of subjects licensed by authors and publishers to be freely used, adapted, downloaded, edited, and distributed at no cost. Here are details about the OTL’s Open Textbook Criteria.

We hope you join the Affordable Learning Working Group and LIT in celebrating and improving awareness of Open Educational Resources.
