The Maricopa Millions Project: Scaling Up OER to Save Students Money and Increase Access

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) is a large community college district, consisting of ten autonomous colleges. The MCCCD plans to scale OER usage throughout the district by remixing and adapting current models of implementation from across the nation. To this end, a task force and steering committee have been established to develop and implement a comprehensive strategic plan to accomplish the goal of saving our students $5 million over 5 years in course materials. The project includes a strategic, sustainable OER infrastructure consisting of building awareness, professional development opportunities for faculty, technical support, marketing, and technical structure. The project will help create a culture that actively encourages, supports, and sustains the use of OER for all course levels across all ten colleges. The course materials will be a mix and adaptation of existing OER course materials as well as development of new content. Our district leaders are committed to OER and the potential it holds to improve student access to materials. Participants attending this session will learn about the beginnings of MCCCD adoption of OER, the Maricopa Millions plan and what has been done to date to achieve this goal.
