FL OER Summit 2023, May 24 - 25!
SAVE THE DATE for this year’s OER Summit, May 24-25, 2023. This year’s theme is “BEYOND AFFORDABILITY.” For the past several summits we have focused on how OER books and materials save students money. During this year’s summit, we’ll explore how the use of OER positively benefits students, faculty, and institutions beyond just saving money. We’ll dig into topics like Open Pedagogy, OER Quality, Accessibility, a focus on Student Success, and much, much more!
Mark your calendars. We’re looking forward to another great FL OER SUMMIT in 2023. We hope to see you there!

“The exchange of information presented me with classroom strategies.”
“Great advice from other Florida faculty and staff who have already transitioned to OER. It's good to hear success stories from people who've already done this.”
“The free flow of information in the true spirit of OER.”
“I liked institutions sharing their experience, learning about new OER platforms, and keeping abreast with new trends.”
“I gained insight into real practices, not just ‘what we hope to see/do is great. It helped me plan based on trends and actual experience of other institutions.”
