The CARLI Open Educational Resources Task Force is pleased to share that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library will host an in-person and livestream event in celebration of Open Education Week on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 from 3:30-4:30pm.

Professor Jasmine Roberts from The Ohio State University has been invited to present her talk titled, "Beyond Free Textbooks: How OER Addresses Access, Inclusion, and Academic Excellence."

Individuals are welcome to attend in-person at the University of Illinois Main Library in Room 220, located at 1408 W. Gregory Drive, Urbana, IL 61801 or tune in to the livestream of the event.

This keynote address will evolve current open educational resource (OER) discussions that typically center on cost-savings themes to a conversation about how using these resources improves pedagogy and addresses diversity and inclusion in higher education. More specifically, this talk will address how OER improves the conditions of marginalized student and faculty populations through more inclusive and equitable practices. The keynote will also challenge the audience to think more critically about traditional academic practices, procedures, and infrastructure by encouraging the adoption of open education philosophies at the institutional level.

If you have any questions, please send them to CARLI Support.
