As the session begins you'll hear from the first of three speakers addressing the concerns about OER and those who speak and educate on topics related to social justice topics, in this case anti-racism. We will discuss how the book, “FROM RACIST TO NON-RACIST TO ANTI-RACIST: BECOMING PART OF THE SOLUTION by Dr. Keith L Anderson came into being. All too often the author is not compensated well or expected to do the work and no charge. We are looking for solutions for this issue. With some assistance from technology and open licensing concepts we will talk about this case study where a book on anti-racism was published with an open license, through an often used tool but at the same time was made available to be at a pay service which can provide compensation for the author. We will discuss technical aspects of editing the book, once it is written, as well as using print on demand services and local printing services. We will discuss various challenges and opportunities that came along the way. Look at the idea that the OER portion of this author's work is a primer or catalyst for additional work, at which point the author can be compensated for directly. The idea here is to get the information out to as wide a possible audience as available and at the same time provide resources for the learners that enable them to take in the author's work the way that is best for them. At the same time giving the author a chance to lead various workshops, and lectures, and presentations in hopes of creating further work in this area, providing insight to those who may need additional opportunities for understanding and clarity of such topics.

Learning Outcomes:
In this case study, learners will come away with an understanding of: How to create OER in several formats, including print on demand and digital. Also, have the work be openly licensed and create an avenue of compensation for the author. Create an avenue for the author to address future work by offering work via OER as catalyst for more opportunities and future work.
