Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

In March, 2016, Open Oregon Educational Resources awarded $200,000 (USD) in grants to fund 35 OER projects in Oregon's community colleges. The projects range from redesigning courses around existing OERs, to revising/remixing OERs for specific course outcomes, to creating new materials where there is a demonstrated need for open content.

With almost 90 faculty participating from 15 institutions, the current grant cohort represents a range of familiarity with open materials, platforms, and licensing - from novice to expert.

Yet everyone needs to move beyond "Great idea!" to understanding the nuts and bolts of implementation. Open Oregon offered grantees training sessions on platforms, open licensing (including combining materials with different licenses), accessibility, and assessment.

This presentation will cover Open Oregon's approach to faculty training and share the materials that we used. It will be useful for those with programs where faculty are ready to move beyond searching for and finding OERs, but may need some roadblocks removed when it comes to implementation.
