No-cost course materials & Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide provides resources for finding alternatives to pricey textbooks and locating open educational resources (OER)

How can Tisch help?

Tisch offers a syllabus affordability review program to reduce course materials costs for your classes. We will consult with you and review your current syllabus, and assist as you:

  • Identify no-cost course materials to replace existing texts in your syllabus
  • Modify existing open materials or create your own
  • Answer copyright questions about using material

We also offer Affordable Course Materials Awards to provide financial support for faculty and instructors in the Schools of Arts, Sciences & Engineering who would like to reduce costs for their students by identifying no-cost course materials to incorporate into their syllabus.

Use our contact form to get in touch with the Tisch OER Steering Committee.
