Building a High Impact Car as We Raced It: Developing a Multi-discipline, Large-scale OER Collection

In May, 2020, the NC General Assembly awarded funds to the University of North Carolina System to fund a multi-pronged approach to support faculty and students transitioning to remote and online learning both during the summer and looking ahead to the upcoming academic year. Included in this effort was the development and launch of a multi-discipline resource of digital course enhancements curated and peer reviewed by over 150 UNC System faculty, librarians, and instructional designers from 17 institutions.

During this presentation, participants will learn about the genesis of the project -- where the idea originated and why it happened so quickly, how we connected development of agreed-upon student learning outcomes to outcome specific open educational resources, and the process of winning over faculty to OER in the process. We’ll share our experiences with nebulous licensing, a template for identifying meta-data used across the collection, and our next move to establish a repository for UNC System faculty to utilize in the future. Lastly, participants will experience equity and inclusion models incorporated into Chemistry course collections by two teams of faculty, and will gain ideas for their own equity and inclusion modules.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and access the resource.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will hear about launching a large-scale, discipline specific, fast-paced project; Participants will have the following takeaways: Process map; meta-data template; examples of incorporating diversity into open ed content; and access to the course collection.
