Cultivating an OER Pathway: A College-Wide Collaborative Approach

Santa Ana College (SAC), a large community college in Southern California, has employed OER in a variety of courses for the past three years, beginning with a pilot initiative secured as a participant in a Next Generation Learning Challenges grant-funded Kaleidoscope Open Course Initiative. After a few years, it was discovered that we had begun pockets of OER, but did not have a sustainable approach for OER growth and adoption. We now have in place a collaborative approach that is fostering OER interest and growth.

Our collaborative endeavor involves the Distance Education department, a task force of faculty from various disciplines, an OER librarian, campus and district administrators, support staff, and an outside OER facilitating organization.

SAC's Distance Education Coordinator and OER librarian will present on the following collaborative initiatives that have forged and strengthened SAC's OER adoption pathway:

* Distance Education department's initiation of OER with select faculty

* OER Task Force comprised of faculty across the disciplines to address curricular and professional development issues

* OER librarian's support of SAC faculty with locating OER connected to course learning outcomes

* Lumen Learning support and partnership toward efficient OER usage

* Campus administrator advocacy of OER programming

* Student Equity funding of OER professional development opportunities

* LMS and media support provided by college support staff

This presentation appeals to faculty, librarians, and administrators pursuing OER on their respective campuses, at any stage of the process. Time will be reserved near the end for audience questions and anecdotal sharing.
