Human Services - TCC OER Subject Guide: OER starting points

This guide compiles starting points for OER and freely available resources for Human Services courses and topics. This OER subject guide was created for TCC faculty and staff and reflects TCC credit, continuing education, and corrections course offerings. The purpose of this guide is to help faculty and staff more easily find and review OER in their areas so that they can make decisions about quality, accuracy, relevancy, and potential use.
