LibreTexts is pleased to announce we will once again be co-sponsoring the 3rd annual Cal OER conference to be held virtually Wednesday, August 2 through Friday, August 4. 

Cal OER will focus on OER efforts and impact, broadly defined, across the state of California and especially across the state’s three public higher education systems, the California Community Colleges, California State University, and University of California. While the emphasis of the event is OER, presentations focused on sustainable approaches to reducing or eliminating instructional material costs for students will also be considered. Individuals submitting proposals will be asked to identify which of the following tracks is most aligned with their proposal:

  • Engaging Students in OER
  • Advocating for OER
  • Sustainability
  • Exploring OER
  • Demonstrating the Impact and Efficacy of OER
  • Open Pedagogy

Please note that proposals that focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion are expected and anticipated in all tracks. 

The call for proposals will be out soon with a submission deadline of Monday, June 12.

Registration is $25.

Please check the Cal OER website for regular updates.
