Navigating Creating Upper-Level OER for Science Electives

Upper division electives are as varied as the faculty who teach them. Which frequently means that one textbook doesn’t fit all expectations. This seems like an area where the adaptable OER would fit in nicely, giving the professor the ability to customize a text to their course. However, frequently that there are no open access resources for these widely varying special topics. Frequently, a single expensive text is required for students, but a professor may supplement with other texts not required, but also not accessible to the students. In this session, strategies for creating an OER text for a upper division elective will be shared (that don’t require writing an entire textbook from scratch), while also soliciting ideas from the audience.

Learning Outcomes: *Strategies for creating new OER
*Challenges with creating new OER
*Resources for adapting other content for Elective Courses
*Where to start with creation (versus adaptation/adoption)

Open Educational Resources became a passion project for me almost 4 years ago. It was my first year as a faculty member and I realized just how expensive some textbooks can be and how many students were having to choose between the textbook (to be successful in my course) and food... Read More →
