Thank You For Another GREAT OER Summit!
The 2021 FLVC OER Summit is Now a Wrap!
Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make this event a huge success!
A special thank you goes out to the outstanding lineup of educators, librarians, instructional designers, students and others who presented on an array of OER-related topics, and who shared their knowledge and experiences in advancing OER and affordable learning at the state, national, and international levels. Thank you to the event’s sponsors for their generous contributions as well.
This was the first time the OER Summit was hosted in a live, online virtual environment. As such, more than 350 people from across the nation – many of whom couldn’t attend a live OER Summit in previous years -- were able to participate. We’ve received great feedback about the inclusiveness and convenience that this virtual experience afforded all attendees.
Expanding student access to no-cost textbooks and other learning materials continued as an overarching theme, highlighting tools and resources to help attendees continue their OER journey at their home institutions. We were pleased to offer sessions on a number of focused topics that were suggested by the OER community, including:
- Sustainable OER
- Grant recipient stories
- Supplementary; Beyond the textbook
- Integrations with the Learning Management System
- Standards and Copyright
Again, thank you for participating in the 2021 FLVC OER Summit, and for helping make it a success for the entire OER community!
