Regional Leaders of Open Education (RLOE) Call for Collaboration

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join the Regional Leaders for Open Education (RLOE) to hear how open educators are collaborating on common solutions to challenges that are faced by project leads at diverse, multi-institutional college, university, and library consortia. RLOE was launched in 2019 by CCCOER members interested in exploring issues around open education as a profession, best practices for policy and strategy, stewardship of data and content, and sustainability. Many open education leaders face similar issues of advocacy and implementation beyond their home institution and desire the opportunity to craft common solutions and eliminate duplication of efforts. Leaders from colleges, universities, library consortia, and government agencies from across the U.S. were invited to participate.

Each workgroup developed a focus project for 2020 with a common goal to contribute guidelines and best practices for sharing with other leaders across the U.S. During this panel workgroup leaders will share progress and then invite audience members to provide feedback and propose future directions. We hope that our project outputs will help move Open Education from a collection of projects to a cohesive field, in a thoughtful and strategic manner.

• The Policy & Strategy workgroup is focusing on collaboration with the OER World Map Policy Hub to develop a collection of state policy documents, guidelines, case studies, and best practices to inform other regional leaders.

• The Stewardship workgroup is focusing on emerging frameworks for stewardship of open education resources and student privacy and data to provide a template for ethical and transparent professional practices.

• The Professionalism workgroup is focusing on defining skills and competencies for “open education” roles and their associated competencies to better identify needed professional development for continued growth of our profession.

• The Sustainability workgroup is developing a sustainability guide organized around examples of open education being integrated into higher education infrastructure in order to demonstrate that open education can be part of what we already do.

Learning Outcomes:

• Articulate common approaches to the evolving field of Open Education
• Share the RLOE outcomes and seek feedback from the Open Education community.
• Connect RLOE focal points to current and emerging Open Education initiatives
• Seek input on the next steps for RLOE outputs and workgroups.
