New Year, New NCOER Initiative (National Consortium for Open Educational Resources)

  • Date : January 14, 2021 11:00 AM
  • Meeting Type : Webcast

State leaders, postsecondary education institutions, and education leaders are working across state lines to promote the adoption of open educational resources (OER) to help millions of students access high-quality learning materials that are free to use, customize, and share. OER are free for students, and they make it easy for faculty to personalize lessons and textbooks to engage students with fresh, relevant content.

View this conversation with Tanya Spilovoy, WCET’s director of open policy, and representatives of each of the four regional higher education compacts – the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC), the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) – and learn more about the new initiative.
