USING OER

UCW Library

OER for courses

Students are required to purchase course textbooks, however, UCW has taken steps to support the addition of Open Educational Resources (OER) in courses across the institution. OERs act as a replacement to some of the textbooks and learning resources mentioned. The adoption of OERs in courses addresses issues around access, alleviates financial barriers and makes education more accessible for students.

Courses that are fully OER, and require no purchasing of textbooks or resources, will be listed in the course description section with the below symbol.[1]
