Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI)

The mission of the ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI) is to reduce the cost of educational resources for students by expanding the availability and adoption of high-quality Open Educational Resources (OER). OERI facilitates and coordinates the curation and development of OER texts, ancillaries, and support systems.

Through recommendations to the ASCCC Executive Committee, OERI supports local OER implementation efforts through the provision of professional development, technical support, and technical resources.

If you haven't already please sign up for the ASCCC OER listserv to receive updates regarding resources, webinars, newsletters, and more. To view useful resources for Biology, ECE/Child Development, Communication Studies, Psychology, and Sociology, please visit the ASCCC OERI Canvas page.

October 3, 2019 - Finding OER - and Can you Create a Hybrid? - 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

How do you find OER to incorporate into your courses and can you mix open resources with those that carry a traditional copyright? Join us for an overview of how - and where - to search for resources and a discussion of effective approaches to mixing resources that are licensed differently.

October 10, 2019 - Finding Body Parts - OER for Anatomy - 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

After authoring a resource that you intend to make open, how do you get past your shyness about sharing it and contributing to the OER universe? This session will explore the topic from varied perspectives, including one author’s journey, approaches to providing effective feedback, and a discussion of how the OERI can help.

What is the difference between free content, open content, and fair use? Educators often overestimate what they can do with the fair use copyright exception and underestimate their options with open resources.  Join us to learn about the requirements of fair use as well as how to interpret Creative Commons licenses.
