The 2014 Brooklyn Core Conference featured some interesting conversations around Open Education Resources (OER):

Faculty continue to be interested in the idea of OER, but based on questions and conversations heard at the conference, the issue isn’t whether to proceed, so much as it’s how to. One of the easiest ways to get started is to take the short, self-paced OER101 class, which covers everything from navigating OER repositories to copyright to uploading your own content. OER isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition. It’s good to start slowly, maybe by transitioning a few assignments into something more open, and then expanding upon that gradually over a few semesters, until eventually, your costly textbook has been replaced by a customized, engaging, freely-accessible class.
