This book has been designed to equip instructors with the skills they need to confidently find, use, and create open educational resources (OER). As such, the book is divided into six major sections covering important aspects of working with OER:

  • What is OER: An Introduction
  • Copyright/ Licensing
  • Finding OER
  • Using OER at SAIT
  • Creating OER
  • Teaching with OER

In each chapter, learning objectives are provided to explain what the reader will learn and, in many cases, interactive exercises and examples are available as well.  While this book has been designed to be a stand-alone resource, it also serves as one component of SAIT’s OER Certificate.  If you are an employee at SAIT and would like to learn more about earning your certificate in OER implementation, contact the Reg Erhardt Library or search for OER courses on the PeopleNow system.
