About the workshop:
Every community college in Oregon has its OER champions, and that’s a tremendous step forward for the state – we could not have said this just two years ago. Let’s consolidate this momentum and move beyond a champion model to programmatic OER initiatives that are integrated into what we do, rather than depending on who is involved.
The goal for this workshop is to identify opportunities to work strategically on OER planning. We will look at college mission statements, readiness checklists, and OER policy language in order to develop next steps that can be communicated to colleagues and administrators. We’ll be drawing on the expertise of early adopters to create a supportive environment for thinking big.
2 seats are reserved for OER leaders from each community college to attend this workshop. Open Oregon can cover mileage reimbursement and a hotel overnight for participants. Lunch will be provided. Arrive at 8:30 for coffee and morning snacks.
Join us after the workshop at 5:00 for an informal, no-host dinner at P’s & Q’s Neighborhood Market and Deli.
