Most students are now well aware of the benefits of Open Education Resources in cutting the costs of textbooks, but the Open Education revolution is about more than just books. This presentation with hands-on components shows students and interested faculty about Open Ed tools that can improve their learning experiences – and their course outcomes, too! We’ll learn about open-source tools for citation management, how to find non-paywalled versions of research articles, explore open repositories, and look at the opportunities offered by Wikimedia. By the end of this session, participants will have a broader understanding of the value of open in their educations (and some great tricks for acing that next research paper, too).
