Texas OER Summit for Academic Libraries

Save the date for the Texas OER Summit

November 15-16, 2018

The University of Texas at San Antonio

Academic librarians, faculty, and administrators with an interest in Open Educational Resources are invited to attend a strategic planning summit to consider OER at a statewide level. We hope to develop a set of shared goals and strategies that can be implemented across the state.

There will be no registration fee, but the number of attendees will initially be capped at two per institution. Library deans and directors will designate two attendees from their institutions. The deadline to register is Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 5pm.
