Get Involved

Students are advocating for OER across Canada through textbook broke campaigns, respectfully speaking with or writing to their teachers, championing teachers who are going the extra mile with open educational resources.

OER Work-Study Students At Concordia

OER Work-Study Students gain practical and professional experience while working within a team aimed at serving the wider student body. They actively contribute to outreach strategies, support OER grant recipients by trouble-shooting in Pressbooks, and co-develop our open guidebooks, such as our OER Discipline Resource Guide: Concordia University Library (2nd edition).
