Introduction to Health
Open Educational Resources Textbook
This Open Educational Resources textbook was developed specifically for students! It is estimated that textbook costs have increased 700% since 1980- WOW! This OER book takes away the financial burden of publisher textbooks and reduces just one of the many barriers and challenges students face to completing their education.
About the Author- Kelly Falcone
I believe everyone should have the opportunity to participate in meaningful learning experiences where they leave feeling empowered, appreciative, energized, enlightened, and connected with others. I want to remove as many barriers as possible, thus I am committed to freely sharing what I create with others.
In 2017 I took my first steps into OER and adapted an OER Health textbook. I have never looked back and do not miss using a publisher book. Using OER means all of my students have equal access to the textbook and thus can each participate fully in my class.
In July 2022 I completed the new version of the Intro to Health OER Textbook which is now available through Pressbooks.
