    Guide to Creating Open Educational Resources: A Humanities Approach
    (Lumen Learning, 2020-03) Dickinson, Joshua
    This Open Education Resource "goes meta" by being about itself. Taking a Humanities approach necessarily involves textual analysis, and so this is a short book of design tips from the point of view of this field of knowledge. The OER broadly focuses on tips, tricks, heuristics, and trade-offs as I attempt to encourage more faculty to engage in development of resources which work for them and their students. The tone is informal. Since the creation process is inherently chaotic, there is no step-by-step guide on offer. Instead, I focus on the experience of creating OERs, demystifying some of the supposed boundaries and offering cues and guideposts.
