Costs in addition to tuition remain a large barrier to achieving equity in student success. Open educational resources (OER) change that by providing an affordable, customizable, and reusable alternative to traditional materials which are often expensive and rigid. This panel will discuss recent research and promising practices that show how OER tackles inequity. We will also discuss how OER can greatly improve how we teach and learn by supporting innovative practice, policy, and research.
