This session will focus on my journey of finding, adopting, and using open-source educational resources in physics and astronomy classes over the past three years. Enrollment in classes is up, students are happy, and I enjoy having complete control over all content in my courses. I will discuss resource discovery, implementation issues, and the pros and cons of using open-source materials and conclude with some recommendations applicable for any stage of open-source resource adoption. Participants will discover the joy of teaching with adaptable curriculum.
