Welcome to the CCNY OER Workshop!

About OER at CCNY

The OER initiative at the City College of New York (CCNY) aims to increase education affordability by lowering textbook costs for students and supporting the use and creation of freely available educational materials on campus. We train instructors across departments to find and develop OER courses as well as provide technical assistance on building open course sites.

Our funding comes primarily from the OER Scale Up Initiative, a grant from New York State launched in 2017 to fund the growth of OER on CUNY campuses. CCNY is a leader within CUNY's OER community.
