    Raise your hand if you have a question or comment and you wish to speak
    There are also happy and sad faces and an applaud icon
    Below the Participants window is the Chat window to the center-left of this screen where you can type a question or comment into the box at any time. You can also send a private message to another participant at any time, but please be aware that moderators can see all private messages.
    Below the chat area is the Audio window in the bottom left of the screen. Click on the raised your hand button to let us know you would like to speak. You can use a head set or your phone for audio chat.

  • The Community College Consortium for OER is a community of practice dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of open educational resources to enhance teaching and learning. We were founded to support the community college mission of open access through creating awareness and development of openly licensed, low-cost education materials to make college more affordable and accessible for students. We provide regularly scheduled online and face-2-face workshops for faculty and staff who are engaged in OER projects.

    23. 23. History • Intro to Sociology text was written by Paul Hammond and Ron Cheney of Utah Valley University • Underwent two rounds of editing and revisions by two Sociology faculty members at College of the Canyons in 2010. By 2012 two more faculty joined and made editorial contributions • Marriage and Family text was edited and launched with the four faculty members • Texts are updated, edited for content and relevant (local, timely) examples and pictures are added each academic year
    24. 24. Logistics • Revisions are posted on department website within LMS • Over 4,000 students have used Open Source text • Text is provided for students on COC’s LMS (Black Board) • Also available on collegeopentextbooks.org
    25. 25. OER in Sociology • Currently three courses use OER materials en lieu of for-profit texts 1. Introduction to Sociology 2. Intimate Relationships, Marriage, and Family 3. Sociology of Aging
    26. 26. Sociology of Aging Course Articles, textbook chapters, and Power Points from openstax, Merlot, Sofia, and collegeopentextbooks Introduction to Aging Social Theories of Aging Social and Physical Consequences of Aging Personality and Mental Health in Old Age Family and Aging Love, Intimacy, and Sexuality in Old Age Living Arrangements and Social Roles Paid and Non-Paid Roles of Productive Aging Social Policies to Address Social Problems Death, Dying, and Bereavement
    27. 27. OER Usage and Savings • 33 Soci faculty at COC, almost half are using OER in their classes • OER in three courses, 25 sections total • 30-35 students in each course • Assuming a new, for-profit text would be about $100, students have saved about $75,000 this semester
    28. 28. Latest research shows…. • 17% of COC faculty currently use OER materials • 87.6% of those using OER say they are satisfied or extremely satisfied with the content • 88.7% not currently using using OER are interested in learning more about it

    30. 30. Advantages and Disadvantages for Students Advantages: • It’s free! • Accessible to EVERYONE from the first day of class • Students can save, print, email, share files without restrictions • There are no heavy textbooks to be carried around or forgotten • Text can be accessed by most mobile devices, so most students have access to text all the time Disadvantages: • Students have to print it out if they want a paper copy
    31. 31. Advantages and Disadvantages for Professors Advantages: • No orders need to go through the bookstore • Able to adapt the textbook to lecture, not the other way around • Examples, photos, stats are updated to stay current • Standardized content to begin • Faculty become intimately familiar with content • Chapters can be used in any order • Student success, retention, and participation goes up Disadvantages: • Initial time investment and revision cycles • Chapters can be edited by individual instructors as well, leading to a loss of standardization • Potential loss of big publisher resources
    32. 32. Open Education Excellence Educator of 2015 Anne Marenco, PhD Sociology Department Chair and co-author of several open textbooks. Sociology faculty members have saved COC students millions of dollars over 5 years.

    44. 44. Faculty perspective “The savings is the major part for my decision. I really like my current textbook for Math 97 and Math 98, but the cost is becoming too high for my students. The textbook that I reviewed could certainly be adapted for my needs.” “I would like to know more about open online HW systems for math classes, and perhaps be involved in creating them.” “The open textbook project is terrific. My only concern is adopting one that doesn't have some of the publisher online study materials.”
    45. 45. Next steps • Develop a campus/departmental workgroup that involves multiple stakeholders across campus • Ensure that faculty are supported in their efforts • Facilitate campus-based peer review efforts
