Open educational resources (OER), textbook affordability, and open pedagogy are growing in popularity on campuses of all sizes and types. Librarians are playing a key role in shaping this movement. As open educators, we have the potential to impact things like equity, financial justice, teaching practices, social justice, technology, eBook licensing, scholarly publishing, and more. As we collaborate with others on our campuses to open up educational resources and practices, there are benefits and challenges. What's happening on your campus? How is your library embracing or ignoring OER and open pedagogy? Do you teach using OER? Do you have assignments that would be considered open pedagogy? Does your library have a textbook affordability program or policy? What benefits and challenges have you faced? What's your biggest open dream? Let's gather to discuss librarian as open educator.
