The TCC OER Project: How a College Built and Sustains an OER Adoption Initiative

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

Tacoma Community College is a college that has invested in OER. By hiring of a full-time OER Project Director, leveraging faculty development initiatives and promoting the use of OER across our curriculum our college has saved students a collective $266,000 in three academic quarters (September-June). While the project has made great strides in promoting the adoption of OER, our aim is to build a sustainable model that encourages the use of OER whenever and wherever most appropriate in our teaching and learning. This initiative has required the support of administrators, faculty, staff, and students. In this panel session people who have supported the TCC OER Project will discuss how the project was initiated, how it has grown, and how we are working to sustain OER as a regular part of our teaching and learning.
