PSYC 598: Positive Psychology

OER Project:

Custom compilation plus student-created test bank

Building the course:

“Creating an OER allowed me to pull together a bunch of different resources to build this course and provide different ways for student to experience the materials. I couldn’t have done it without all the support I received from KU Libraries.”

Student appreciation:

“I received the most amazing feedback from my students specifically about the open textbook; it was overwhelmingly positive. They liked the variety of information I was able to include and found that the updated examples made things a lot more interesting. It was nice to get feedback and know that the work I put into the resource was useful for my students.”
