UC Davis Library launches AggieOpen to support OER adoption & creation

This Open Education Week, the library is launching a new program, AggieOpen, to work with UC Davis faculty and instructors to help them access, adapt, adopt and author open educational resources.

Through AggieOpen, the university seeks to promote a more equitable and culturally relevant educational experience at UC Davis by helping instructors create, find, and select openly licensed course materials. Making affordable course materials more widely available will benefit both UC Davis students and students of higher education globally.

To support instructors who want to explore how open educational resources can be used in their courses, the UC Davis Library will:

  • Offer a series of OER Discovery Workshops, the first of which will take place on May 5 (register here).
  • Provide consultation for instructors to identify OER that support their teaching style and course learning outcomes, as well as navigating copyright and open licensing.
  • Maintain an OER Collections guide to connect instructors with openly licensed learning materials


Email aggieopen@ucdavis.edu with questions about OER or to schedule a consultation related to using or creating openly licensed course materials.
