OER and Social Justice with Marco Seiferle-Valencia

In this final episode, I talk with Marco Seiferle-Valencia about his work as an OER librarian and how he has supported faculty in creating low or no-cost materials that have specific social justice goals. He shares how his own positionality impacts the work he does in open and offers a critical perspective on citational practices in open education scholarship.
