Student-created Open Educational Resources in a First-year Writing Context

Several recent studies have investigated the great promise of student-created open educational resources (Randal et al. 2013; Azzam et al. 2017; Wiley et al. 2017). Often, these student-created items focus on developing "renewable" assignments that offer utility to future students. This study builds on previous research by reporting on a case-in-progress of first-year writing students adapting their research papers into public-facing, open-access educational resources. Specifically, this lightning talk will detail the struggles and successes of implementing literature-based best practices as well as present early stages of public perception to the student-created OER.

Learning Outcomes: Viewers of this lightning talk will be prompted to explore the following questions:
1. Does student-created OER content contribute to the popular perception that OER are "Not-high-quality"? (Allen and Seaman 2016)
2. In what ways are students uniquely capable of producing accessible OER?
3. How can assignments built to be thrown away after completion be adapted for open education?
