Session Abstract

In implementing OER programs, we’re often curious what other institutions are doing, what works, where we’ve stumbled and surprising tactics we’d never think of. This roundtable will provide a space for a focused discussion about what is working and how to adapt that at our respective institutions.

Objectives of the Session

Identify different strategies and practices at institutions in attendance.

Connect with other practitioners for potential collaborations or information/resource sharing.

Full Description of the Session

This roundtable will seek to increase the sharing around how institutions are implementing their OER and affordability projects, by giving everyone time to share what they’re doing, what’s working, and what’s been surprising. Furthermore, the session will be used to also allow for conversation and questions about how institutions are doing OER initiatives and what individuals can learn or borrow from such approaches. The first round question to circle through will be “Where are you in your process of developing an OER/affordability program?” The second round will focus on, “What are things that you are doing that have been working for your institution?” The third round will be open where people can ask questions of others based on what they are doing, offering an opportunity to hear more specific details related to the different projects and gain some insight that will useful to the questioner. In follow up, the facilitator will provide a write up of the types of programs and what’s working and share it out among the attendees along with contact information for those that are willing to share.
