OER--Start to Finish Process!

- Initial Librarian meeting: Anne Chernaik will help you identify locations for existing OER in your content area
- Material review: Take a few weeks to explore existing OER and determine what, if any, can be used for your class
PHASE 2: Pre-production Phase
During this phase, we can also offer faculty development to help you fully understand what OER is and what the Creative Commons licensing process entails.
