Using Open Educational Resources
to Promote Lifelong Learning:
Webinar (10/04/2019)

NEFLIN is bringing you an online workshop from the Florida State University School of Information's master's degree programs. 

This workshop provides attendees with knowledge about using Open Educational Resources (OER) to promote lifelong learning. The high prices of textbooks may prevent libraries from purchasing textbooks for their patrons. However, many patrons outside of academia may be interested in continuing to learn. This workshop will show participants how to locate free, high-quality online textbooks from many disciplines and access learning materials to promote learning.

Jeff Phillips, the Social Sciences Librarian, and Amy Mosher, the Graduate Admissions Coordinator, will be there to share resources also available to students of FSU’s School of Information graduate degree programs. The presenters will also cover the degree programs at Florida State University including admission requirements, distance learning costs and financial aid availability.
