Libros en Español: Creating Language Equity through Open Education

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Do a quick search for Open Educational Resources (OER) in any language other than English, and it quickly becomes clear that current OER materials lack linguistic diversity. In this session we will present a new digital texts project, Libros en español, a robust collection of Spanish language, open access texts, hosted on the City of New York’s (CUNY) instance of Manifold. We will introduce you to the Manifold publishing platform and to its new reading group function, which is a great way to foster student engagement through social annotation of digital texts. You will also see an example of how Manifold and Libros en español are currently being used at Lehman College (CUNY) to create an Open Education course, Conociendo a Galdós (Meeting Galdós). We hope that our presentation will inspire you to create and advocate for the development of Open Educational Resources in languages other than English at your own institution.

Learning Outcomes:
- Gain an understanding of the importance of Open Education/Open Educational Resource production in languages other than English.
- Learn about Manifold, an open-source publishing platform, and see an example of how it can be used to create a zero-textbook-cost course.
- See how Open Education/Open Educational Resources in Spanish can foster a greater appreciation and elevate voices from the Spanish-speaking World.
