Description:  Open licenses attached to OER allow for the creation of customized materials, unlike commercial textbooks. As a result, OER provides opportunities for faculty to incorporate more inclusive materials. In this session, the presenters will share ways to adapt or build materials that include multiple voices and viewpoints, especially from underrepresented groups.
