Partnership for Success: How the HCC OER Task Force came Together to Tackle Soaring Textbook Costs

Abstract
We will share HCC’s student and faculty experience and how textbook costs are impacting our students and creating barriers for success. HCC faculty came together under the OER Taskforce to review data and create a feasible strategy for OER adoption. We will share our specific approach, planning process, and support systems. Attendees will be provided with implementation guidelines and resources to share at their campuses. Presentation by four members of the HCC OER Taskforce: a faculty member, instructional designer, the dean of the library and the dean of online programs. The presentation is intended for people interested in developing (or in the process of developing) an OER initiative on their campus with a solid structure. Essential elements such as engaging a range of stakeholders, collecting data and creating measurable goals will be discussed. We will dedicate half the time to telling our story and half to engaging attendees to share their stories and ask questions.
