Thank You, OER Champion

In the Fall of 2022, I started as Clackamas Community College’s first Textbook Affordability Librarian. I was tasked with marketing textbook affordability initiatives like Open Educational Resources (OER) to CCC’s faculty, but wanted to make sure I celebrated faculty who had adopted OER on their own before the creation of my position. After some research on the importance of recognizing your institution’s OER champions, I developed a gratitude campaign that doubles as a marketing strategy. Every spring, I send thank you letters, posters, and stickers to faculty who have adopted OER in hopes that they display their OER champion status proudly for others to see (and emulate!).
