Book Title: OER Student Tool Kit

Subtitle: The Claremont Colleges Open Education advocacy guide for student leaders

Authors: Jennifer Beamer and Megan Donnelly

Book Description: For students, the high cost of educational resources and textbooks can be a serious obstacle to the accessibility and affordability of a post-secondary education. For instructors, traditional educational resources may also present a barrier to innovation in teaching and curriculum design. Fortunately, open educational resources (OER) provide a viable solution to both these issues. OER can be accessed for free online or printed at a fraction of the cost of a traditional textbook, and can be edited to better fit the curricular or pedagogical goals of an instructor.
