Need to find more robust course materials that are available online?
Open Educational Resources, or OER, are materials designed for teaching and learning that are free to students and that also grant permission for people to use, share, and even revise the content. This online guide can help you learn about, find, use, and even create OER.
Want to encourage student agency?
Open education goes beyond the materials educators and students use in the classroom. It can also shape the entire process of teaching and learning in a way that encourages student agency, actively creating and sharing knowledge, and community participation (Cangialosi, 2018). Check out some examples of open pedagogy assignments on UW campuses (including right here at UW Tacoma!) below.

- First Wave Feminisms (UW Tacoma)
- Badass Wmxn in the Pacific Northwest (UW Bothell)
