Free – Open Education Resources

What is an Open Education Resource (OERs)?

OERs are educational materials that are published with an open license (or are in the public domain), so that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt, and re-share them. A helpful way to define the boundaries of acceptable use is to publish the OER materials with a Creative Commons License.

Are OERs actually free? 

Yes! Enjoy the free digital resources below!

Also, if you invest in professional development, training, and coaching, your use of these OER resources will more likely be impactful.  Your colleagues might also prefer physical copies of the curriculum or other products. These other sales are what allow Dovetail Learning to be financially self-sustaining.  If you would like to learn about additional training and support or to purchase any physical copies of the below resources, visit our online store or contact us at info@dovetaillearning.org.
