The ASCCC Open Educational Resources (OER) Task Force will identify ways to institutionalize the use of OER in the California Community Colleges (CCCs). The OER Task Force will advocate for the sustainable use of high quality OER resources and will develop a comprehensive OER plan that is informed by a needs assessment; the current availability of OER resources; and barriers to the use of OER. The OER Task Force will explore developing a repository of accessible resources of OER materials and other ancillaries for CCC faculty.
Through recommendations to the Executive Committee, the OER Task Force will facilitate the use of OER and provide professional development and guidance to faculty in developing and implementing OER materials.
May 17 – OERI What's Next - 9:30 am to 10:30 am
After a very busy 1st term, what's next for the ASCCC OER Initiative? What has been accomplished since the Initiative's initial launch, what will be happening over the summer, and what can you expect in the fall? Join us for this end of the term debrief. Bring your questions, observations, and suggestions.
May 30 – Curating and Publishing OER Resources - An In-Depth Look at Three Platforms - 9:00 am, 10:00 am, 11:00 am
Are you considering developing an OER text-equivalent or creating one by curating existing OER? These three webinars are a follow-up to an introductory webinar that introduced attendees to these platforms. In each of these one-hour sessions, a platform will be explored with a focus on the user experience. Topics to be addressed will include usability, accessibility, print options, attributions, available integrations, collaboration options, and interfacing with Canvas. Join us for one, two, or all three (please note separate registration is required for each meeting).
