UTA's Coalition for Alternative Resources in Education for Students (CARES) is a multidisciplinary group of stakeholders from across campus who are working together to raise awareness of alternatives to high-cost, commercial textbooks, such as open educational resources (OER) and other free or low-cost options. In addition to sharing information about these alternatives with our campus partners, the group is responsible for providing input and guidance on the university's open education initiatives.
Coalition membership for the 2017-18 academic year. Contact Michelle Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information about the Coalition and our work. Slides from the fall meeting are available on SlideShare.
