Sustaining an OER Advisory Council for the Connecticut State College and Universities System

Abstract
The CSCU OER Advisory Council is a group formed of members from the 17 CSCU institutions and UConn charged with supporting OER efforts across the system and the work of the statewide CT OER Coordinating Council. This presentation will provide an overview of the history of the Council including its formation, previous successes, and current initiatives and challenges through a sustainability lens. We will share details and circumstances surrounding the founding of this group, the original charge and how our work has evolved over time, the structure and regular function of the group, as well as a review of the different projects and initiatives the Council has developed and supported. Examples of this work include advocacy for the CT OER Coordinating Council’s grant program, implementation of course marking in CT State Community College, the creation/curation and distribution of resources to support CSCU faculty in adoption, revision, and creation of Open content, and more. We will include interactive polls to engage attendees and moderate a Q&A discussion after our presentation. Since our topic is focused on administration of OER initiatives, we believe all levels of expertise could benefit.
