Building and Leading an OER Initiative @ CUNY
The focus of this year’s CUNY CTL Advisory Council Retreat is Open Educational Resources (OER) and aims to provide an avenue for deeper discussions about the benefits, approaches, and implications Institutions need to take into consideration to bring OER to their campuses.
The CUNY CTL Advisory Council also aims to establish a repository of resources for Institutions to use as they are exploring implementing OER.
