Wiley: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching - John D. Shank | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it

Sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), this one-of-a-kind book demonstrates the best tools, resources, and techniques for discovering, selecting, and integrating interactive open educational resources (OERs) into the teaching and learning process. The author examines many of the best repositories and digital library websites for finding high quality materials, explaining in depth the best practices for effectively searching these repositories and the various methods for evaluating, selecting, and integrating the resources into the instructor’s curriculum and course assignments, as well as the institution’s learning management system.

John Shank's curator insight, January 15, 3:07 PM

I just received the author's copy from JB - nice to finally hold it in my hands. A lot of hard work went in to it, but if it helps faculty and librarians find and integrate these high quality resources into their courses it will all be worth it. JB did a great job with the cover of the book and thanks to ACRL for co-sponsoring this first of its kind book.
