Open educational resources (OER) are free to access. Open Creative Commons licenses allow teachers to legally make copies, adapt, and share these resources in order to meet the specific needs of their students.
Celebrate Open Education Week by attending this discussion-based webinar, where you will have a chance to chat with three instructors who have adopted OER and creatively adapted the content for their language classes.

- Valérie Morgan is a French lecturer. She uses the open curriculum Français interactif to teach Levels 1, 2, and 3 French. To supplement the textbook she uses Google Classroom, Google Tools, Flipgrid, and Padlet. Read more about her OER use here.
