  • 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

    • 36. NOVA’s OER-Based GeneralEducation Certificate ProjectThe Northern Virginia Community College(NOVA) Extended Learning Institute (ELI) wasawarded a CIF Grant from the VCCS to createand offer a series of online general educationcourse options utilizing free, high-quality OpenEducational Resources instead of traditionaltextbooks and other costly course materials.
    • 37. Goals of This Project Offer Twelve (12) textbook-free courses Fall2013; Create greater awareness of OER at NOVA; Help faculty to identify existing OER and/orcreate new OER content to improve teachingand learning; Make education more accessible andaffordable for all learners at NOVA andthroughout the VCCS by doing away with therequirement for students to purchase and relyon expensive textbooks for these courses.
    • 38. Courses SelectedWe selected high-impact courses for a broadpopulation English – ENG 111, 112,125 Math – MTH 151 Science – PHY 201, 202 History – HIS 121, 122 Humanities/Fine Arts – ART 101, 102 Social/Behavioral Sciences – HIS 262 Student Development – SDV 100These courses can be completed as an entire certificate program orindividually
    • 39. Faculty CommitmentThe faculty participatingin the OER project werecarefully selected based on: A history of providing high quality andinnovative instruction; A clear understanding and applicationof sound online teaching pedagogy; And demonstrated knowledge of andprior use of some open coursecontent.
    • 40. Project Resources Faculty are provided stipends to redesign thecourses using OER instead of traditionaltextbooks. ELI resources (Librarian, InstructionalDesigners) are provided to assist in coursedesign and development. All course material developed for this projectwill be shared throughout the VCCS andlicensed Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Creative Commons license.
