Looking Beyond Cost: OER as Intentionally Engaged Social Justice

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

This session will explore core concepts from my forthcoming article "Not Just About the Cost", which looks at how recent projects at the University of Idaho's Think Open Fellows have intentionally engaged OER as social justice intervention. To complete this case-based approach, we will discuss how these goals are informed by Black Feminisms. Finally, I will conclude with a black feminist call to action to engage OER for social justice.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will leave with specific inspiration on how academic OER can engage with core concepts in social justice via troubling standard curriculums by including marginalized histories.
