Announcing our 2023 Open Educational Resources Grants recipients
To make access to resources easier and cheaper for students, Deakin Library works with academics to use and develop Open Educational Resources (OER). OER are educational materials that are made available under an open licence that can be used, adapted and shared at no cost. Students can freely access the materials and retain copies, which makes them some of the most useful and valuable resources around.
Since 2021, the grant program has supported a range of projects from across the faculties. These include the replacement of costly textbooks in science and business management, the development of OER including Historical thinking for senior secondary students: A collection of teaching and learning activities 2022, Español down under: Spanish for Australia and New Zealand and a Business Finance textbook in use by students this trimester. Resources are soon to be released for workplace negotiation, mathematics and education along with video resources for soil testing and engineering career education.
