OER Summit 2021

The OER Summit is Back in 2021.

Summit Update:

Due to the uncertainty of the Coronavirus, we had to cancel the 2020 OER Summit. We have heard from many of you about the importance of this summit so we have decided to move forward with the 2021 OER Summit in a virtual environment. We look forward to “seeing” you this year at our virtual event and we remain hopeful for the possibility of more in-person events returning in the coming years.

OER Summit Overview

Building on our previous events and efforts, we are excited to offer the opportunity for Florida stakeholders, of all roles, to come together to work on reducing the cost of textbooks and supplies for our sunshine state students. Faculty, students, librarians, instructional designers, support services, and higher education administrators will not want to miss this year’s event as we explore tools and resources to help them in their OER journey at their home institution.
