Getting Tenure Without Losing Your Mind: How to make the OER work you’re already doing count

Session Abstract

Finding ways to recognize OER in the tenure and promotion process has long been a goal for open education advocates. The tenure and promotion process shows what is valued by an institution and is key to the sustainability of open education. To highlight the ways that folks have been successful in this process, the Driving OER Sustainability for Student Success (DOERS3) collaborative solicited case studies of their experiences. In this presentation, two faculty members at the City University of New York will discuss how they included OER in their portfolios. Stacy Katz, Open Resources Librarian-STEM liaison, is a library faculty member at a senior college and achieved early promotion to Associate Professor. Shawna M. Brandle is a full Professor and political science faculty member at a community college. By sharing their experiences, they hope to help faculty, staff, and administrators see how OER work can align with the tenure and promotion process.
