About Us

This online guide to OER purveyors and open teaching materials was developed by faculty for faculty. TeachOER catalogs commonly used OERs for a variety of disciplines.  The site can be searched via OER type (“Categories”) or by discipline/topic via the tag clouds on the main page.

Professor Cheryl Smith (English) and Digital Pedagogy Specialist, Laurie Hurson (CTL) conceived of and developed this project in the summer of 2017. The project was originally funded by the “Teaching and Learning with Technology” grant, provided by the Baruch Computing and Technology Center.  Ongoing support for site development and teaching resource creation is provided by Baruch College’s Center for Teaching for Learning (CTL) and their Open Education Resources Initiative, part of the New York State “OER Scale Up” Initiative.
