Heard at a Tenure/Promotion meeting...What is OER?

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

The nature of scholarship as well as the value of the “scholarship of teaching” have been debated for decades. OERs are a tough sell to tenure and promotion committees in great part due to the combination of historical attitudes toward textbook authorship and the skepticism that developed surrounding digital publications. This presentation will provide a historical view of faculty and administrative attitudes that have surrounded the production of textbooks throughout the last century as well as those that developed with growing scholarly production of digital objects.

The speaker will outline methods that have been employed by scholarly institutions to address these concerns.


Learning Outcomes:
1. Attendees will become familiar with the history of textbooks and attitudes toward textbook authors by faculty committees
2. Attendees will become familiar with the issues of acceptability of digital publication by faculty committees
3. Attendees will be able to identify potential methods for changing campus attitudes toward the value and scholarship of OER creation
