|Open Education Resources in Libraries|
Event Type: FLW Statewide Webinars|
Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Librarians are educators. Libraries are educational institutions. Librarians are in the sharing business and it is first-rate! According to the Open Education Consortium, “sharing is probably the most basic characteristic of education: education is sharing knowledge, insights and information with others, upon which new knowledge, skills, ideas and understanding can be built.” Whether they are purchased or freely acquired, librarians should be open to sharing their resources to everyone who wants to use them to enrich their lives through education. Open Education Resources (OER) include resources or tools that can be used and modified for free and without any legal or technical barriers, and when used properly can help foster a transparent culture of learning and engagement in our communities.
