"Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student or self-learner. Examples of OER include: full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations, and many more resources contained in digital media collections from around the world." -OER Commons
The University of the Pacific held a funded OER Pilot in the Summer of 2017 as a joint partnership between the Technology in Education Committee (TEC), Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and University Libraries (UL) to jump-start adoption of OERs and develop best practices for the Pacific community. From the Pilot, ten faculty were awarded grants to integrate OER materials in their AY17-18 courses. See their materials below or click here to read more about the Pilot. A secondary phase of the Pilot will take place during the Summer 2018 Session. Check back for more details as they become available.
