MacPherson Institute EdTech's insight:
UBC postdoctoral fellow Arthur Gill Green talks about how open education can help instructors practice responsible pedagogy. Green, who is currently a faculty fellow for BCcampus added, “If students can't afford resources, if they can't afford textbooks and it's hindering their learning, then we're not being responsible in how we choose the textbooks and how we choose what students should read."

"Free: Why Authors are Giving Books Away on the Internet" by John L. Hilton III and David Wiley

With increasing frequency, authors in academic and non-academic fields are releasing their books for free digital distribution. Anecdotal evidence suggests that exposure to both authors and books increases when books are available as free downloads, and that print sales are not negatively affected. For this study we interviewed ten authors to determine their perceptions of the effect free digital distribution has on the impact and sales of their work. In addition, we examined the sales data of two books over a two year period of time, in which one book was freely available for the second year. All of the individuals we surveyed felt free digital downloads increased the distribution and impact of their book. None of the authors felt that print sales were negatively affected. Data from our book sale comparison suggest that in the case we studied, free digital distribution did not negatively affect sales.

Open educational resources and college textbook choices: a review of research on efficacy and perceptions | SpringerLink

Open educational resources and college textbook choices: a review of research on efficacy and perceptions | SpringerLink | Educational Technologies | Scoop.it
Increasing textbook prices, coupled with general rising costs of higher education have led some instructors to experiment with substituting open educational resources (OER) for commercial textbooks as their primary class curriculum. This article synthesizes the results of 16 studies that examine either (1) the influence of OER on student learning outcomes in higher education settings or (2) the perceptions of college students and instructors of OER. Results across multiple studies indicate that students generally achieve the same learning outcomes when OER are utilized and simultaneously save significant amounts of money. Studies across a variety of settings indicate that both students and faculty are generally positive regarding OER.

Start with a general search engine and some carefully chosen keywords (e.g. high school, biology, photosynthesis). If you need to search further, try some of the general OER repositories, and finally the relevant theme-based repositories, or individual project sites. If entire text books (or extracts) are required, start with "Open Textbooks". Search for quality, and have confidence in your own ability to judge how useful the resource looks for you and your learners.
