Dr. Veronica Howard
A common issue we encounter as practitioners is accessing resources we need to develop effective
programs, teach future behavior analysts, and expand on our own understanding within the field. When
we hear the term “open educational resources,” there are many different ideas that come to mind,
including questions regarding the validity of these resources. After an introduction to what Open
Educational Resources are, misconceptions about them and the impact that they have on improving
accessibility of education in behavior analysis are discussed. Open Educational Resources are one way we are making the science that is about everyone, for everyone and breaking down systemic barriers in the field.
