March 6 @ 12:30 pm 1:00 pm EST

One of the key advantages of Open Education is the ability to reuse and adapt existing content. Luckily, this also addresses some of its biggest challenges: time to create, localization, and visibility. However, navigating through the vast sea of open educational resources can be overwhelming.

Join us for this quick 30-minute session about the Pressbooks Directory – a free, open-to-everyone repository of over 6,000 resources across 170+ institution covering a wide range of subjects. With many of these resources being openly licensed and all of them being entirely free to read, you can find your perfect resource to either share or adapt for your educational needs.

We’ll walk you through how to use the Pressbooks Directory to 1) find the content you want to reuse or take inspiration from, 2) reuse and adapt this content for specific classroom needs and 3) how you can add to this growing library
