Open Education Guide: IDEA and Open Education

This guide is designed to help the SPSCC community learn about Open Education. It will help faculty and staff find, create, evaluate, and incorporate open educational resources for instructional and training purposes.

IDEA and Open Education

Open education is best approached with inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) in mind.

Here are some notable IDEA-centered OER examples that have been created recently.

Here is a podcast episode about re-mixing an OpenStax text to be more inclusive. The instructor then researched students’ sense of belonging. This is a good example of both the power of what we can do with OER and specific changes we can make to OER to make them more equitable.
