Session Abstract

This roundtable will explore the use of Open Educational Resources (OERs) in the undergraduate classroom. With the growing availability of a range of different materials free, open, and online materials for teaching history more educators than ever are using OERs. Some of these resources are the product of large-scale group efforts to create materials, some are bespoke course materials put together by the teacher, and some are being created by traditional presses. The participants in the roundtable all have experience using a variety of different textbooks and online materials, and will explore the benefits and challenges of using OERs.
