Amigos Library Services Online Conference: The Library's Role in Supporting Open Educational Resources
Join us on December 4, 2019 for an Amigos Library Services online conference, The Library's Role in Supporting Open Educational Resources, where we will explore the roles libraries of all types play in supporting open educational resources. Regina Gong, the Open Educational Resources (OER) & Student Success Librarian at Michigan State University, will kick off the conference at 10 am Central with her opening keynote, Paving the Way Towards Students Success: Librarians as Leaders and Partners in OER Initiatives. This keynote presentation will highlight the work done by librarians in advancing awareness of and advocacy for open education. How can librarians provide meaningful support and be an integral partner to the different stakeholders on campus to encourage and sustain OER adoptions? More importantly, she will share how we as a community can ensure that our work is supported, valued, and celebrated. Throughout the rest of the day learn about how libraries are supporting OER in specific subject areas, developing partnerships with faculty and students, using OER in the classroom, cataloging OER materials, and much more.
