Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Educational Resources
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This Code is a tool for educators, librarians, and authors to evaluate common professional scenarios in which fair use can enable them to incorporate inserts, including those protected by copyright, to create OER. It can provide groups working on OER projects with a shared framework for evaluating and understanding when and how to incorporate existing content to meet pedagogical needs.

While we have released this code under an open license for the widest possible reuse, please be aware that the principles are carefully crafted to be read together and reflect the series of workshops and interviews that informed the Code. Please make clear when you are using only an excerpt, and carefully note if you are making
any changes or alternations not in the original code. Over time, there will be additional supplementary materials and updates to this code available at auw.cl/OER.

Improving Representation and Diversity in OER Materials
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

From OpenStax, a review framework and set of prose guidelines for development of diversity and representation in OERs. While the entire conception and approach of a textbook should consider all populations, even a well informed and well-meaning author or editor can misstate or misconceive diversity/representation issues.
For example, even a member of a certain group can use an archaic term to define that group. To focus on the practical, OpenStax has worked with experts to identify specific areas of course materials that reflect inclusivity or a lack thereof. They have evaluated their existing textbooks on these elements, and the community has agreed that the resulting changes have been effective and positive.
