Building a Coalition for Statewide OER Initiatives in Texas
The Statewide OER Coordinating Committee is comprised of staff members from a variety of academic libraries in the state including community colleges, ARLs, and the Texas Digital Library consortium. The committee is intended to “bridge the gap” between the OER Summit and a more formal coalition of institutional stakeholders that can act on the priorities set forth at the summit. Since January 2019, the committee has undertaken the writing of a white paper, investigating further meeting opportunities, coalition-building and advocacy efforts. This 25-minute presentation will inform participants of the work done by the committee so far and planned outreach and activities for the 2019-20 academic year.
