In Summer 2020, Everett Community College received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create shared course shells using Open Educational Resources in several high-enrollment Humanities courses. This big project with a short timeline was the first major partnership between faculty and eLearning focused on using OER. It included several steps: choosing courses, faculty professional development, a focus on accessibility, collaboration with an instructional designer, and communication with other faculty who teach the courses.

In this presentation, EvCC Director of Educational Technology Heather Mayer will outline the project goals and timeline and share lessons learned on the project management side. Instructional Designer Jeff Iannone will discuss his role, and faculty member Kristina Jipson will share her reflections. This session will be useful for anyone working on department or large-scale OER initiatives in a community college environment.
