Collaborations and conversations: Establishing an open educational resources initiative at a small public university
MetadataShow full item record
Establishing an Open Educational Resources (OER) initiative can be challenging for any institution-- funding, staffing, and faculty buy-in may be roadblocks for the most inventive or ambitious of projects. While these overarching challenges are present within any higher education institution which strives to encourage faculty adoption of OER, there are unique issues relevant to such an initiative at a smaller public institution, particularly one which does not receive state or federal funding to incentivize adoption. Using Texas Woman’s University (TWU) as a case study, this community resource will explore these unique concerns by providing information, templates, and other documentation of the campus collaborations and conversations which occurred over the past year as a SPARC OER Lead Fellow, in support of our OER awareness campaign.
