The OER Starter Kit (Elder, 2019) published by Iowa State University Digital Press is a helpful guide to getting started with open educational practices. Written mainly for beginners with some jumping off points to delve deeper, the guide is divided into five sections: Getting Started, Copyright, Finding OER, Teaching with OER, and Creating OER. Elder touches on important considerations including how to work toward diversity and inclusivity in OER content and involving students in contributing to course materials.
