I am working on getting open educational resources introduced and adopted at Kapiʻolani Community College, the University of Hawaii Community Colleges, and the University of Hawaii System. OER allows anyone who teaches or anyone who wants to learn to revise, mix, and distribute educational materials that are either in the public domain or openly licensed for those activities. Imagine taking a beautiful image, making it into a poster, and distributing it throughout your library system? This can be done with an openly licensed image. Imagine needing to write a textbook that centers the human experience of astronomy in Hawaiian skies, science, and stories. This can be done with openly licensed textbooks. Address diversity and equity in your teaching materials and help everyone have access to learning.
