Open Education Leadership, 11 am MST

Community College Consortium for OER

For nearly two years, the COVID-19 pandemic and the social injustices happening in the U.S. thrust leaders in higher education institutions to reflect, navigate, and strengthen their operations. Specifically, they were uniquely challenged to improve student success, all the while ensuring inclusivity, equity, accessibility, and social justice. Open education has been an obvious route for many institutions to help reach these institutional goals. This webinar will feature leaders who will share their strategies in supporting and enhancing the teaching and learning environments by way of open education.

Creating Robust OER in Collaboration with Campus Libraries, 11 am MST

Tennessee Higher Education Commission

Have you thought about the audience for your OER beyond your own campus? How about the preservation of your work for future use? In this session, librarians will give examples of how they’ve helped OER authors and adopters improve the impact and reach for their work, make more accessible materials, and ensure access for years to come. If you are applying for an OER grant, have an OER you want to share, or if you’re a librarian wanting to hear from other institutions regarding OER support, please join us for this practical and conversational session.
