Many colleges have developed successful OER initiatives through participation in communities of practice (CoP). Panelists will share information about their OER initiatives and how participation in community activities supports the design of effective open educational practices and policies at their institutions. As part of an ongoing community of practice, members create and freely share knowledge based on experiences at their institutions. This cross-institutional exchange supports new OER adopters and gives them an opportunity to grow into mentors for the next generation of first-time OER adopters.

As OER-based degrees have emerged as a promising new open education practice, CCCOER is working with Achieve the Dream’s OER Degree grantees and other colleges to support the cross-institutional development work and share best practices for successful implementation. Audience members will be encouraged to share any OER projects in the planning or implementation stage that would benefit from cross-institutional support and get feedback from our panelists.
