Big Fish in a Little Pond: OER in the Liberal Arts

Abstract
While OER adoption has transformative potential at all institutions, private liberal arts colleges often lag behind on usage. Compared to community colleges and universities, liberal arts colleges present a unique landscape with their own set of challenges and opportunities for OER. Learn how to leverage the strengths of a liberal arts institution to support wider use of OER on your campus. The session will provide an overview of challenges and opportunities that liberal arts colleges present in terms of OER adoption. There will be real time polling interspersed throughout the presentation, as well as a twitter hashtag (#OERgofish) to collect audience participation and collective knowledge. The presentation will end with a SWOT analysis activity in which attendees will pair up to identify strengths and weaknesses at their home institutions and how these impact their OER environment.
