Achieving Equity through Open Educational Resources @ SXSWEDU

Costs in addition to tuition remain a large barrier to achieving equity in student success. Open Educational Resources (OER) change that by providing an affordable, customizable, and reusable alternative to traditional materials which are often expensive and rigid. This panel will discuss recent research and promising practices that show how OER tackles inequity. We will also discuss how OER can greatly improve how we teach and learn by supporting innovative practice, policy, and research.

Speakers: Nicole Allen, SPARC; Sharon Leu, U.S. Department of Education; Jasmine Roberts, The Ohio State University; Daniel Williams, OpenStax Rice University

  19. 19. http://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/students-are-still-saddled-soaring-textbook-costs-report-says-n516011 “Rising tuition costs aren't the only thing driving up the cost of higher education. Textbook prices have skyrocketed in recent years.”
  20. 20. Student feedback on using open textbooks In my opinion, this is the most effective use of a textbook. Instead of requiring students to buy an $80 textbook, that's loaded with useless material, this textbook is straightforward, and free. Usually when teachers assign readings, I don't read them because I know they will be covered in class the next day, and I don't want to spend 2 hours reading 25 pages of banter. This textbook is to the point, easy to read, and actually allows me to learn. It's accessible, and tailored specifically to this class. I think every class should make their textbooks this way.
  21. 21. Benefits of Open Pedagogy ●Students’ work (from all communities) adding value ● Marginalized groups have the potential to be better represented ●Reinforces the notion that knowledge is multi-directional ●Students take more responsibility for their learning
