Designing a Modular Statewide Open Education Resource for College Writing
In this session, the authors of Write What Matters, OPAL fellows for the Idaho State Board of Education, share best practices for creating a modular open education resource in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. We used the state general education outcomes and partnered with the Idaho State Board of Education and Rebus to create a resource in Pressbooks that is open, accessible, and relatable to a variety of audiences including students in first year composition courses, dual credit students, and students in first year experience courses as well as more advanced students in literature and analysis courses. Rather than focusing on an institution-specific resource with a single “voice,” we chose to create a book that incorporated a variety of existing open education resources while also preserving the original authors’ voices. The book is enhanced with H5P exercises, ready-made essay and discussion prompts for instructors, and video resources helpful to students. The book (still in beta form) is available here: https://idaho.pressbooks.pub/write/

We are excited to share what we learned in the process and to explain how OERs like the one we created can benefit students in rural states, especially in times of crisis.


Learning Outcomes:
1. Understand how the modular approach to OER adaption and creation meets a variety of stakeholder needs.
2. Learn about online collaboration tools that are important to successful OER projects, especially in the COVID-19 environment.
3. Appreciate the importance of including diverse voices and experiences in OER content, which benefits students and teachers.

From Users to Creators: Making and Sharing Open Labs for Online STEM Courses
This presentation from the University of New England’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies (CGPS), composed of a lead course instructor and 2 instructional designers, will explore the collaborative process behind creating and making accessible open lab assignments for an online Introductory Physics course in response to COVID-19. Introductory Physics has been redesigned using the OpenStax College Physics textbook, but lab assignments have relied on lab kits from a commercial vendor. When this lab vendor experienced significant delays in shipping to students, our team of adjunct Physics instructors tasked themselves with creating alternative lab assignments that could be completed by students safely in their homes as affordable remote labs. Instructional designers then incorporated these alternative labs into online course sections, ensuring students in geographically isolated locations were able to complete their full course without significant interruption or loss in educational quality. Building from CGPS’ commitment to adopting more OER in courses, instructional designers proposed openly- licensing these new instructor-created labs, in order to properly credit instructors for their individual contributions and to share back resources to the wider educational community. We will discuss how we seek to support instructors throughout the OER creation process and how we ultimately intend to share these materials out. Finally, we will talk about the unexpected challenges and additional labor requirements that have presented in our attempts to convert these lab assignments into fully open materials, and how we intend to mitigate these issues in future projects by planning for openness as an explicit project goal.

Learning Outcomes:
Explore a project framework for instructor-created, open labs in an online physics course; Identify opportunities and challenges present in applying this framework to other online STEM courses

Tackling a Mammoth in Physics with the Help of Co-op Students
First- and second-year physics and engineering students enrolled in classical mechanics (statics and dynamics) courses have long been burdened with the cost of commercial textbooks and homework systems. Not only has the financial cost to students in North America been astronomical, but both teaching and learning have been impacted. Since classical mechanics has not changed in centuries, open textbooks seem like an obvious solution, however existing options lack enough practice problems of the quality and complexity found in commercial textbooks. Practising problem-solving is essential to learning these topics, so large sets of problems are required (e.g. a typical textbook contains 3000+ unique problems). Creating quality mechanics problems is very time-consuming, however. Students and educators have been forced to pay dearly for commercial textbook problems without the ability to modify or reuse them.

In this session, participants will hear from students and educators taking on the challenge of creating OER to ultimately eliminate the need for commercial textbooks. The presenters will discuss the approach, lessons learned and the important collaboration both cross-institutionally and cross-jurisdictionally.

Since June 2020, more than 400 problems have been developed for the Open Problem Library (OPL) in the open homework system (OHS) WeBWorK (currently being piloted for release in 2021) and integrated into the MechanicsMap open textbook (http://mechanicsmap.psu.edu). The presenters will discuss the rationale behind choosing this OHS.

But did we mention that all of this work has taken place during the COVID-19 pandemic?! With government subsidies to hire co-op students plus funding through BCcampus, six co-op students were hired to develop problems with supervision from two faculty members. This opportunity for students to gain valuable experience, earn an income and work remotely has been pivotal to their education and development during this difficult time. 

The presenters will share the larger goals and next steps of the project and how others can get involved. We hope to demonstrate that, through collaboration, student involvement and creativity, the goal is achievable.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will be able to consider and appreciate the:
-benefits of student participation in OER creation
-benefits of engagement in cross-institution and cross-jurisdiction collaboration
-use of open source platforms (open homework systems in particular) for OER development and learning
-phased approach that can be taken to accomplish larger goals
-lessons learned in embarking on a large scale, dynamic OER project

Collaborating Toward an Open Future in Education
Open education policymaking is a key area covered by the 2019 UNESCO Recommendation on OER, which invites member states to "develop or encourage policy environments, including those at the institutional and national levels, that are supportive of effective OER practices".

The OE Policy Hub (a new project of the OER World Map) is being developed to support activities being undertaken around the world to implement the Recommendation, especially those related to policymaking, cross border cooperation and monitoring. Following the approach of the OER World Map, the Hub aims at aggregating and connecting available information for the benefit of educational policymakers, policy advisors and researchers. The core element of the Hub is the OER Policy Registry, a collection of policy documents which was started by Creative Commons in 2015. One of the challenges of the project is to extend the data collection process to the activities leading up to, and triggered by, the publication of initial policy documents. Another challenge is to identify mechanisms to evaluate policy impacts, to support benchlearning.

The Policy Registry currently includes around 200 policy documents from all educational sectors and levels classified by a comprehensive metadata schema. The Hub aims to go one step further by providing a curated collection of tools and resources as well as a database of experts within the field of OE policy.

The Policy Hub is now collaborating with the Community College Consortium for OER (CCCOER), a growing consortium of U.S. Community and Technical Colleges committed to equity and student success through the adoption of open educational practices, policy, and resources. CCCOER is a regional node of OE Global. Through its Regional Leadership for Open Education (RLOE) initiative, CCCOER aims to collaborate across institutional and state boundaries to find solutions for issues impacting OER adoption in statewide programs and in large multi-institution systems. The collaboration with the Policy Hub aims to explore the feasibility of documenting and storing state-level policies and guidelines within the Policy Hub platform. Through partnering with U.S. practitioners, the Policy Hub team will develop the functionality, usability and relevance of the platform for the global OE community. This presentation will outline the core elements of the project, summarize key lessons learned so far, and sketch planned next steps.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will learn about the OE Policy Hub as a new service for policymakers, advocates and researchers and how it contributes to the implementation of the UNESCO Recommendation. They will have grasped the different functionalities of the platform and how to use it. Also they will have an awareness of the challenges and opportunities involved and be able to participate in further discussions about the Hub's future development.

How a Multi-Institutional Collaboration Leveraged Undiscovered Expertise and Sparked Innovation
WATCH THE VIDEO AND JOIN THE TWITTER CHAT! #Collaboration #OpenEd20

Collaboration across the provincial college system has been limited in practice because it has not been widely encouraged, explored, or supported. When funding models do not support cross-institutional opportunities then colleges miss out the benefits of collaboration. Subsequently, educators tend to gravitate to the familiar, siloed textbook and learning materials creation projects within the walls of their own institutions.

In this presentation we will reflect on what we learned from our project that took a multi-institutional collaborative approach to building open educational resources (OER). This project included students, faculty and support specialists working together to create resources that were meaningful to them. Explore with us this idea of people working collaboratively, building relationships, and influencing change as a way to reimagine and sustain OPEN education

Learning Outcomes:
Hear from two authors who led a team of remote collaborators through the curation, creation, and publishing of an OER during a Pandemic.

Contrast the benefits and challenges of a multi-institutional collaboration approach to building Open Educational Resources (OER).

Discuss the sustainability of this approach to building relationships and influencing change in open education.

Changing the Narrative: Queens History as World History
Link to the NHPRCQIH Resource Guide
A librarian and historian established community partnerships with scholars of Global History, Queens Libraries’ Queens Memory Project, National Archives, and NYCDOE to develop open curriculum for grade 10 NYC Global History that challenges traditional, Eurocentric immigration narratives in New York City. NARA/NHPRC grant monies and university/partner in-kind contributions were leveraged to offer professional development opportunities for NYC teachers to create open curricula that encourages students to apply historical thinking principles to researching family and neighborhood cultural histories, including exploring the motivating world history factors that have contributed to shifting demographics in recent US history. Using a combination of freely-available globally-and culturally-relevant digital collections, the open curricula was developed to be replicable in other regions and allows students to be discerning users of, and contributors to, digital archives. Teachers were encouraged to adopt Open Pedagogy and Universal Design principles, allowing students demonstrate learning through projects ranging from GIS-maps, videos, shadow boxes, papers, podcasts, and video games. The project resources also encourage teachers to explore intellectual property, privacy, metadata and cultural knowledge issues around digital archives in order for students to determine if/how they wished to license their own archival-quality objects to local community archives, so that those archives might better reflect current immigrant and refugee communities and, in turn, become resources for future migration history researchers.
Learning Outcomes:
Open assignments developed for Global History, US Government, Economics, and Social Justice courses that help students apply historical thinking (complexity, causality, change over time, contingency, context).
Open Pedagogy assignments that encourage students to critically engage with digital archival materials, both as user and potential contributor.
Collection of freely available, globally- and culturally-relevant resources, that expand a resource-gap in personal, historical research.

Regional Leaders of Open Education (RLOE) Call for Collaboration
Join the Regional Leaders for Open Education (RLOE) to hear how open educators are collaborating on common solutions to challenges that are faced by project leads at diverse, multi-institutional college, university, and library consortia. RLOE was launched in 2019 by CCCOER members interested in exploring issues around open education as a profession, best practices for policy and strategy, stewardship of data and content, and sustainability. Many open education leaders face similar issues of advocacy and implementation beyond their home institution and desire the opportunity to craft common solutions and eliminate duplication of efforts. Leaders from colleges, universities, library consortia, and government agencies from across the U.S. were invited to participate.

Each workgroup developed a focus project for 2020 with a common goal to contribute guidelines and best practices for sharing with other leaders across the U.S. During this panel workgroup leaders will share progress and then invite audience members to provide feedback and propose future directions. We hope that our project outputs will help move Open Education from a collection of projects to a cohesive field, in a thoughtful and strategic manner.

• The Policy & Strategy workgroup is focusing on collaboration with the OER World Map Policy Hub to develop a collection of state policy documents, guidelines, case studies, and best practices to inform other regional leaders.

• The Stewardship workgroup is focusing on emerging frameworks for stewardship of open education resources and student privacy and data to provide a template for ethical and transparent professional practices.

• The Professionalism workgroup is focusing on defining skills and competencies for “open education” roles and their associated competencies to better identify needed professional development for continued growth of our profession.

• The Sustainability workgroup is developing a sustainability guide organized around examples of open education being integrated into higher education infrastructure in order to demonstrate that open education can be part of what we already do.

Learning Outcomes:

• Articulate common approaches to the evolving field of Open Education
• Share the RLOE outcomes and seek feedback from the Open Education community.
• Connect RLOE focal points to current and emerging Open Education initiatives
• Seek input on the next steps for RLOE outputs and workgroups.

Lessons Learned from a Large-scale OER Initiative
In Summer 2020, Everett Community College received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create shared course shells using Open Educational Resources in several high-enrollment Humanities courses. This big project with a short timeline was the first major partnership between faculty and eLearning focused on using OER. It included several steps: choosing courses, faculty professional development, a focus on accessibility, collaboration with an instructional designer, and communication with other faculty who teach the courses.

In this presentation, EvCC Director of Educational Technology Heather Mayer will outline the project goals and timeline and share lessons learned on the project management side. Instructional Designer Jeff Iannone will discuss his role, and faculty member Kristina Jipson will share her reflections. This session will be useful for anyone working on department or large-scale OER initiatives in a community college environment.

How the OERcamps reinvented Open Education (and where we failed)
This talk will be pre-recorded. The presenters will be available for Q&A afterward via Zoom immediately afterward. There will be a Zoom meeting via https://oercamp.de/opened20/  

The concept and ideas behind open education can only strive if sustained by a strong community of practitioners, and being continuously introduced to newcomers in a welcoming environment. OERcamps, a series of barcamps for practitioners of Open Education across all sectors and levels of experience provide just that. A strong base is provided for getting to know and sharing experiences on OER and open education. We will discuss our experiences with OER community-building events run in different formats including traditional workshops, unconferences, hackathons, and other alternative formats that have taken place over the past 8 years.

The OERcamps in Germany started in 2012 as an annual unconference. In the last years they have grown to more than 10 events per years, several formats, a book, a collection of CC BY licensed materials created by a community of practitioners.
We are building upon experiences that have been acknowledged by a UNESCO report on OER-related activities in Germany which stated: “Since OER activities are mostly driven bottom-up, there has been a need for sharing questions, experiences and materials between players, who have been isolated in their own institutions. These players found opportunities for sharing in cross-sector events and communities. Especially the barcamp/unconference format turned out to fit tremendously well developing a strong German OER community.” (Orr, Neumann, Muuß-Merholz 2017, 8). Our findings, driven by more than 8 years of experience in the field, show that cross-sectoral dialogue provides sustainability as it shows relevance of concepts such as OER and Creative Commons to a variety of communities.

OERcamps are events with participants from all sectors of education and can be transferred to all sectors. They follow open educational practices by means of participants and hosts creating content under a CC BY license, providing individual learning paths, and sharply reducing hierarchies. We want to share our experiences elaborating on the differences and commonalities of the formats.

We encourage our audience to build upon our experiences by hosting their own barcamps as excellent opportunities to foster peer to peer learning and build sustainable, diverse communities. To further promote this format, we will briefly introduce and invite to improve the translation into English of our openly licensed book and material on “how to barcamp”.

Learning Outcomes:
Attendees will learn how the unconference format barcamp works, in general and adapted for the OERcamps. They will know what learning goals can be supported for individual learners, for communities of learners and for a OE network. Sharing our experiences is meant to be an invitation and encouragement to try and use the format for p2p learning within your own communities. We will also share a book, that is currently available in German and as a draft translation to English (CC BY).

Opening Education and the Open Government Partnership’s Local Program
The Open Government Partnership (OGP) has been an important avenue to create open educational policies on the national level. Relatively recently, an OGP program for sub-national governments (cities and regions) was launched; by November 2020, approximately 50 *new* cities will join the OGP. This creates a significant opportunity for open education advocates to “onboard” local government leaders: now is the ideal time to share how open education efforts can strengthen open governance practices ranging from increased fiscal transparency to improving civil society engagement in policy making. OGP government leaders can use open education as a tool to maximize their impact in OGP-related projects, as well as other trans-national collaborations, such as the UNESCO OER Recommendation.

Session facilitators are former government representatives who worked on national level OGP commitments in Slovakia and the US. Facilitators will offer concrete suggestions from their own North American and European-centered perspectives for OGP local work with OER. Facilitators will also invite participants to brainstorm and contribute resources to fuel future open education commitments for OGP local members. The brainstorm will address a selection of the questions such as:

What are recommended practices, stories and examples of open education policy commitments from which cities can learn?
How might we inform policy conversations about open education at the local levels?
What might the local governments’ action plans include?
Without policy interventions at the national level, what open education-related policies at the local level might best support students and teachers?
What are the recommended ways to connect the local policies with national policies?
How might we best harness the connections/synergies possible between the local policies to SDGs, OGP priorities, UNESCO OER Recommendation?

This session provides an opportunity for participants to explore and actively contribute (primarily through active discussion and live collaboration on a shared document) to the development of the material that will later be shared with the leadership of the OGP Local team and shared with the cities that participate in the local program.

Because the local governments typically deal with elementary and secondary education (and not higher education), the session will focus accordingly.


Learning Outcomes:
Through the session, participants will co-develop examples of OGP Local action plan commitments (template language), ready to be adopted by OGP cities. The resource list will be edited collaboratively (through Google Docs or similar). Upon additional review and revision in 2020, facilitators will share the draft resource list and example commitments with the OGP Local team by January 2021.
