One of the top concerns that faculty and librarians express about adopting open education resources (OER) is finding materials. In two hour-long webinar sessions librarians from Washington State community and technical colleges  will share their expertise in conducting a search for OER. We will demonstrate how we search for open materials, and take questions about how to construct viable search techniques.

*Please note, different presenters will lead each session, but these webinars are meant to be stand-alone events
