About the Pathways Project Materials

Many of the activities on the Pathways Project OER Commons Repository are created by upper-division students at Boise State University and serve as a foundation that our community of practice can build upon and refine. While they are polished, we welcome and encourage collaboration from language instructors to help modify grammar, syntax, and content where needed. Kindly contact us at with any suggestions and we will update the content in a timely manner.
