Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or are released under a license that permits free use and re-purposing by others.
In order to reduce higher education expenses for students and to meet the needs of faculty who wish to publish open textbooks, Information Services sponsored an Open Educational Resources Grant funded by the Office of the Dean of the Faculty.
Open textbooks created by Connecticut College faculty are free to use with proper attribution of the author.
Derek D. Turner
Derek Turner, Professor of Philosophy, has written an introductory logic textbook that students at Connecticut College, or anywhere, can access for free. The book differs from other standard logic textbooks in its reliance on fun, low-stakes examples involving dinosaurs, a dog and his friends, etc.
