  • Administrator help is invaluable, here. One method to enhance OER and AER adoption: designate someone, either a Dean or a Chair to research OER and AER in the various disciplines. This individual could send information regarding these resources to faculty that teach the courses. The directive could be that faculty review the resources, and if they choose not to adopt, they can send a form opting out with an explanation as to why the resources are inappropriate. Forcing adoption violates academic freedom; but forcing review does not. The “explanation” part of the form will ensure that faculty actually takes the time to review the resource.
  • Also drives enrollment; when students know that the resources are open or affordable, they will be more likely to enroll in the class.
  • ACE credit: pre-calculus, algebra, introduction to genetics and evolution, bioelectricity, calculus
