Feb 10: OER and Best Practices for Faculty Development

Please join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) for a free and open CCCOER Logowebinar on best practices for Faculty Development to promote OER adoption.   Two librarians who are leading efforts in their states to inform and inspire faculty to adopt OER will be featured.

Open Oregon is a project of Oregon community colleges focused on reducing textbooks costs and open education is gaining momentum as an innovative and long-term solution to the problem. Amy Hofer is the statewide coordinator of these efforts and works with all 17 community colleges in Oregon to help promote these efforts through faculty development and sharing resources centrally.

Lansing Community College held its first OER Summit in fall of 2015.  With support from their Provost,  Regina Gong and her team organized a statewide event for Michigan community college featuring OER thought leaders from many organizations including CCCOER and also faculty from Lansing Community College.  It was an important event to inform and advocate for using open educational resources to reduce costs and expand faculty’s curriculum choices.
