Join the OER Working Group!

As part of a new initiative to promote the use of Open Educational Resources (OERs), the Minnesota Literacy Council is looking for ABE or ESL teachers to try out free teaching materials or lesson plans in their classrooms, evaluate them, and share their evaluation with other teachers online.


We will help you locate materials appropriate to your teaching situation and learn to use OER Commons, the online system for sharing them ( Participating teachers will meet together quarterly (face-to-face or online) to discuss what materials they are using, how they find materials, and what we can do to better promote the use of OERs in Minnesota ABE.


Participating teachers can earn a stipend of up to $200. For more information, email  at or call (651) 251-9072.
