New Institute on Open Educational Resources – Apr 30
AAC&U, with expertise and leadership from OpenStax and ISKME, is launching the Institute on Open Educational Resources (OER). Utilizing a new institute model, the OER Institute provides a yearlong, online engagement opportunity for teams from campuses or state systems seeking to actualize an ambitious strategy to broaden campus engagement with the adoption of OER.
At the two-day kick-off event, July 26–27, 2021, attendees will engage in activities designed to develop an OER implementation plan. After the kick-off, attendees will partner with Institute faculty to implement and advance their plans throughout the fall and spring terms. In addition to monthly webinars and cross-institutional planning meetings, a daylong event will be held on December 6, 2021, to prepare for the spring semester. The Institute will conclude with a two-day capstone closing event on July 25–26, 2022.
Applications due April 30, 2021.
