Adopting and Creating Open Educational Resources (OER)

Where to Find Open Language Textbooks

Open textbooks can be adapted to fit the needs of your specific course. UW instructors can reach out to the Open Education Librarian for support.

Finding OER for Teaching and Learning French

Instructors can freely mix and match these openly licensed resources or incorporate components into new work. Email the Open Education Librarian to learn more.

Open Access Options

Although free to use, many open access materials do not allow revision or creation of derivative works. This distinguishes them from OER, which can be remixed freely. See: Open Access & Open Education: Similarities and Differences.

Recent Work in OER

Speakers at the first Foreign Language OER Conference in March 2021 shared their experiences developing OER for higher-level French language courses. Linked recordings are on YouTube.
