Emilie Zickel is an Assistant College Lecturer in First-Year Writing at Cleveland State University. She has been using OERs in her courses for over five years, has created her own remixed version of a Composition textbook, and, with Melanie Gagich, led a team of First-Year Writing faculty at CSU to create A Guide to Rhetoric, Genre, and Success in First-Year Writing, the open access rhetoric textbook currently used in all FYW courses at CSU.
