This "Re-imagining" session encourages input and guided conversation among the regional compacts and together with the OER community. The compact panelists will share their regional and national work and ask for feedback and input from the session participants. Questions will include:
1. How can the regional compacts support the OER community during COVID-19?
2. How might the regional compacts help reduce structural inequities including systemic racism, and barriers to the access and full participation in the Open exchange of knowledge?
3. How can we all work together at the system, state, and multi-state compact levels to more efficiently scale OER?
During COVID-19, state, system, and institutional leaders are searching for ways to make college more equitable, accessible, and affordable for students. The WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) is working in concert with the four regional higher education compacts (MHEC, NEBHE, SREB & WICHE) to facilitate evidence-based frameworks and guidelines which promote policy and practice support to increase access, affordability and equity via the use of OER. The session focuses on the regional compacts' role in exploring large-scale policy and best practices in the higher education landscape in a collaborative manner.





Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will learn about OER collaboration among the four regional compacts.
2. Participants will learn how systems, states, and multi-state regions have worked together to promote OER state policy and practice.
3. Panelists/Presenters will listen and learn how to best support OER efforts in their regions and across the US.
4. Participants and Presenters will learn more about each other and how they can encourage and support each other's efforts.
