On February 14, CADRE is hosting a webinar on freely available, openly-licensed open education resources (OER) in K-12 STEM. Panelists and participants will discuss the current demand for OER and opportunities for NSF-funded projects to contribute; key considerations, opportunities, and challenges for individuals, projects, and organizations developing OER (e.g., intellectual property and financial trade-offs); how OER products are identified, evaluated, and used by teachers, schools, and districts; and avenues for dissemination and uptake.
