Value of OER: 4 slides, spell out to a specific person (admin)
• Lower costs to students — admin wants this, it will sell the school to the state, to parents
• Rethink course material — be [more] selective in choice of objects taught
• Bring students into teaching, into the production of knowledge — this may be uncomfortable for both students and faculty who are more familiar with lecture classes, but addresses university mission statement (rigorous, passionate, community-oriented).
• Become a learner as well as a teacher — admin will like this, as well, in part because it addresses faculty development/pedagogy.
