Everything You Didn't Want to Know About OER: A Toolkit That Will Boost Your Confidence

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

This session is geared toward librarians, but is also relevant to faculty, instructional designers, students, and anyone charged with leading an OER initiative. On many college campuses, advocating for and supporting OER programs is a one-person job...but it doesn't have to be. Let's face it-- not everyone is overly enthusiastic to add one more thing to their job responsibilities. As the role of liaison librarians continues to adapt and evolve, liaison librarians should have a basic understanding of OER and the ways it can support faculty and student success. But who has time?
In this presentation, an OER Librarian from a community college will detail the competencies and resources librarians need in order to collaborate with faculty in supporting and sustaining a strong OER program on their campus.
An easily adaptable “OER Toolkit for Librarians” developed as a capstone project for the SPARC Open Education Leadership Program in 2019-20 will be detailed and shared. The toolkit was developed as a resource for non-OER Librarians, but is useful for anyone tasked with leading an OER program at their institution. Attendees will be introduced to, and/or become more familiar with: open education and open educational resources, copyright and Creative Commons, Open Pedagogy, how to find OER and open images, where to connect with OER communities, and more.

Learning Outcomes:
Attendees of this session will be able to: search efficiently for OER, confidently support faculty working with OER, locate OER community resources, identify and recommend quality OER, adapt an OER toolkit for their own library or institution
