OERs are digital materials made available freely and/or through open licensing that allows educators to repurpose content. OERs can allow funding typically spent on textbooks to be redirected for other pressing needs, but they are not always accessible to all learners. In this session, you will learn about resources to help you select and/or create accessible OER content to support learning in inclusive settings. A set of quality indicators for incorporating OERs into a robust procurement system for accessible educational materials (AEM) will also be discussed.
