Pastega Room, Richard Woodcock Education Center, Western Oregon University

To participate, your institution must bring a team that includes the following:
– at least one academic leader, such as a dean or VP;
– at least one faculty leader;
– faculty development roles, such as librarian, distance learning, accessibility, or instructional support;
– representatives of other relevant units such as bookstore, admissions, registrar, marketing, etc.

Before the workshop: AtD asks each participating institution to take a readiness diagnostic in time for them to review the results, sent via email in April.

Workshop agenda: AtD will share their expertise in planning no-cost/low-cost degree pathways, institutional transformation, and sustaining high-impact OER programs. The core of the day will be hands-on work time for action planning in which institutional teams identify steps to take in the next academic year to set and achieve goals around no-cost/low-cost pathways.
