  1. Hi Jessica, Have you run into the terms #EnvHist and #OER used in the same breath lately? I’m working on a project to make my textbook and course materials full-on OER before I use them in a class this Spring. So I’d be interested in connecting with others, seeing what they’re doing, possibly collaborating, etc. Thanks!
