Open Educational Resources

Overview of OER Initiatives

East Tennessee State University’s Open Educational Resources (OERs) Initiatives provides training and financial incentives for instructors to reduce student textbook costs. Our initiatives include the Open Textbook Network Workshops and Open Educational Resources Awards Program. These initiatives are a collaboration of the Charles C. Sherrod Library and the Center for Teaching Excellence and funded by the Student Library Fee.
