The movement for open educational resources - free online materials to use instead of or in addition to textbooks - is experiencing unprecedented momentum. Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will lead this discussion.

OER resources have proliferated, while concerns about all of the costs of attending college (including textbooks) have continued to grow. The combination is creating an OER moment.

The following are some of the topics the webinar will discuss:
-- National initiatives and campus-based efforts to promote the use of open educational resources OER
-- Placing OER within the context of other pushes for change in higher education
-- Some of the challenges that remain for OER
