Open Educational Resources – materials that are freely available on the web or in the library – benefit students immediately through cost savings and can be a great vehicle for faculty looking for new ways to refocus their teaching. The purpose of this workshop is to share ideas on quality content, effective teaching practices, and institutional needs in order to move OER from a great idea to implementation. Faculty, administrators, librarians, and other community college stakeholders are invited to attend a lively discussion on setting achievable targets and reaching those milestones in this important effort to support student success. Please attend if you are new to OER, have found ways to reduce student costs in your course, or already the greatest champion of open resources on your campus – we want to talk with you!

Bring your ideas, teammates, and laptop to discuss your real needs for planning and support in order to redesign courses and programs around high-quality, freely available materials.

Registration includes travel reimbursement as well as stipends for part-time Oregon community college faculty. Please register by the Early Bird deadlines for first consideration.
