Collaboration across the provincial college system has been limited in practice because it has not been widely encouraged, explored, or supported. When funding models do not support cross-institutional opportunities then colleges miss out the benefits of collaboration. Subsequently, educators tend to gravitate to the familiar, siloed textbook and learning materials creation projects within the walls of their own institutions.

In this presentation we will reflect on what we learned from our project that took a multi-institutional collaborative approach to building open educational resources (OER). This project included students, faculty and support specialists working together to create resources that were meaningful to them. Explore with us this idea of people working collaboratively, building relationships, and influencing change as a way to reimagine and sustain OPEN education

Learning Outcomes:
Hear from two authors who led a team of remote collaborators through the curation, creation, and publishing of an OER during a Pandemic.

Contrast the benefits and challenges of a multi-institutional collaboration approach to building Open Educational Resources (OER).

Discuss the sustainability of this approach to building relationships and influencing change in open education.
