As the lead OER representative in our Centre for Teaching and Learning, I am tasked with communicating and sharing how to use, modify and create OER with our faculty. With the pivot to remote learning many instructors are turning to digital resources and the interest in OER within our institution has spiked. I have found the following OER to help support faculty when they decide to shift the sources of their primary and supplementary resources to use OER.
