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.
Zero Textbook Cost program
- The MBA Foundation program is the first fully OER program at UCW. All courses within this program have no textbook or resource fees. (See MBAF Web Resources.)
Open textbooks reviewed by UCW faculty
