Open Educational Resources (OER) Task Force

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.
