While the pandemic has brought about an increase in interest in OER textbooks, many faculty will initially hit a dead-end when looking for a replacement textbook. What best practices can librarians and instructional designers draw on to turn what could be a dead-end search into future OER win? While the pandemic has brought about an increase in interest in OER textbooks, many faculty will initially hit a dead-end when looking for a replacement textbook. As Open Education matures, the conversations that we have with faculty can drive larger curricular and infrastructural changes needed to support broader adoption of OER in higher education. This session is designed for those with introductory knowledge of OER and are interested in the best practices on collaborating with faculty and with taking their campus OER efforts to the next level. Listen and pose questions to a panel of OER advocates that have a combined 40+ years of experience with OER “dead-end” searches and solutions. Strategies they will discuss will include approaches to advocating for faculty publishing, faculty community support, non-textbook OER options, campus advocacy efforts, and more.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will be able to 1) Describe, adapt and adopt strategies for converting OER search fails into successes 2) Support publishing OER efforts on their campus 3) Reimagine instructional design to incorporate non-traditional OER and 4) Brainstorm ways to effectively connect faculty with a network of support
