    40. 40. Why Work With Students? • • • Students are ultimately the beneficiaries of OER Students are effective messengers We need an army Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    41. 41. Tips: Working With Students 1. Focus on affordability. Generally speaking, students are interested in OER for one thing, and one thing only – cheaper textbooks. The key to attracting and motivating students is to present OER as a solution. Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    42. 42. Tips: Working With Students 2. Explain why OER is a solution. Students want lower costs next semester, not next decade. They tend to fight hardest for immediate solutions: renting, used books, reserve copies, etc. To gain student support, it is important to provide context for why OER is a solution worth fighting for. Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    43. 43. Tips: Working With Students 3. Don’t overcomplicate things. Most students don’t understand open licensing – and that’s OK. Students can appreciate and advocate for OER as a solution without knowing the ins and outs of the different licenses, etc – all they need is a practical understanding (stay tuned). Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    44. 44. Tips: Working With Students 4. Start with “Open textbooks” “OER” and “educational resources” are foreign terms to students. It’s best to focus on the most familiar form of OER, “open textbooks.” Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    45. 45. Explaining OER to Students What are open textbooks? 1. Comparable: like any other text – similar material and format, sold in the bookstore 2. Affordable: low-cost in print and digital form – read free online, download printable PDF and/or buy a hard copy for $20-40. 3. Flexible: professors can legally create their own version of the textbook by removing unwanted sections and adding new material. Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    46. 46. Explaining OER to Students Why support open textbooks? 1. Savings: professors who adopt open textbooks save students 80% on average, that’s $10,000 for the typical 100-student class. Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    47. 47. Savings vs. New Books Open Textbooks Rentals E-books Used books 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org Source: www.studentpirgs.org/textbooks/research @SPARC_NA
    48. 48. Explaining OER to Students Why support open textbooks? 1. Savings: professors who adopt open textbooks save students 80% on average, that’s $10,000 for the typical 100-student class 2. Options: students can choose whichever print or digital format they want, all at low costs Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    49. 49. Student Preferences 25% 34% 66% Prefer digital Rent All Keep Some 75% Prefer print Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org Source: www.studentpirgs.org/textbooks/research @SPARC_NA
    50. 50. Explaining OER to Students Why support open textbooks? 1. Savings: professors who adopt open textbooks save students 80% on average, that’s $10,000 for the typical 100-student class 2. Options: students can choose whichever print or digital format they want, all at low costs 3. Change: major publishers have a stranglehold on the market, and the best way to change that is to increase competition with OER Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    51. 51. Explaining OER to Students Why take action now? 1. Self Interest: if your professor chooses an open textbook, you could save hundreds next semester! 2. Define the Enemy: this is the best way to fight back against publisher rip-offs 3. Stress Urgency: faculty are choosing books for next term right now, and students are the best hope to tell them about OER Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
    52. 52. Outreach to Students Student Groups • Student government • Political, consumer or social justice groups, like PIRG, Campus Progress, Young Dems, etc. • Academic clubs and societies • Fraternities and sororities • Environmental or cultural groups Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA

Outreach to Students Individual students • Ask professors to recommend students, or offer extra credit for participating • Create opportunities for students to selfidentify: sign up form, posters, flyers, info sessions • Distribute materials to help students take action on their own Scholarly Publishing &Academic Resources Coalition www.sparc.arl.org @SPARC_NA
