CCCOER Faculty Panel: The Benefits and Challenges of Adopting Open Educational Resources (OER)

Hear from faculty who have developed and adopted open textbooks, open courseware, and open resources to lower costs and improve teaching and learning. Topics include adopting and customizing a psychology open textbook, developing an open online course for administration of justice remediation, and collaborative development of a “how-to-learn-online” course utilizing only existing OER. Attendees will also find out how their college can become involved in the open education movement and participate in the Community College Consortium (CCCOER) at the OpenCourseWare Consortium to share lesson learned and find partners for collaboration.

  9. 9. Implementing OER – Intro Psych Instructor’s initial expectations and biases Appropriate resources should be plentiful – choosing will be hard! Critical that materials be entirely downloadable/printable. Moving from a printed text to OER should be easy.
  10. 10. Implementing OER – Intro Psych Instructor’s realities Appropriate resources are not plentiful. Limiting one’s choices to downloadable/printable is… limiting. http://www.saylor.org/courses/psych101/?is missing=0&resourcetype=1 “San Bernardino Community College: Professor T. L. Brink’s Psychology: A Student Friendly Approach” Different iterations of Stangor’s text – originally developed for Flatworld
  11. 11. Different Iterations? http://www.peoi.org/Courses/Coursesen/p sy3/contents/frame1.html Flatworld – presently free access to 1st 3 chapters.. https://learn.canvas.net/courses/65/modul es And others…
  12. 12. Implementing OER – Intro Psych Instructor’s realities Reviewing and preparing assessments for a new “text” takes a long time and is truly not fun. But – a great opportunity to increase use of supplemental materials that just might go away.
  13. 13. Implementing OER – Intro Psych Student realities Some desirous of a traditional text. Solution – encourage obtainment of ANY text as a secondary resource. Instructor’s observation of students Not as thrilled with not having a text as one would hope. Appears that reliance on general websites is increasing.
  14. 14. Implementing OER – Intro Psych Next steps? Identify and/or develop supplements to address challenging topics for students Seek student feedback on materials Secure appropriate permissions for all resources – ideally with easy access to a low-cost print version

  23. 23. Is Preparing Students For Online Learning an Effective Practice? Yes! • An orientation for online students should be available • The orientation should include self- assessment of technical skills and readiness for DE, and include learning strategies • A student success course for online learning could also improve retention and success • MOOCs can be useful as preparation for taking a course
  24. 24. MOOCSICLE: MOOC Student Information Center for Legal Education • I will be building MOOCSICLE for Hartnell College • Primary focus: remediation and ongoing student support • Every Administration of Justice student will automatically be enrolled • I will encourage all students to visit MOOCSICLE on a regular and ongoing basis to enhance success and retention rates in the Administration of Justice courses and programs

MOOCSICLE • MOOCSICLE orientation will include use of the CMS (Etudes), navigation of the course shell, use of the course shell, DE student best practices, email etiquette, and how to access and use Hartnell College online student support services • The orientation will also include all ADJ syllabi and textbook information • In addition to basic technology and student success skills for online learning, the orientation will include a module on writing effectively in the online environment
  27. 27. After Participating in the Orientation. . . • Students will be directed to complete an Online Student Readiness Assessment (OSRA) • The OSRA will provide recommendations for remediation • After an initial test-run, the OSRA may be administered as a pre and post-test
  28. 28. MOOCSICLE Will Also be an Assessment Center • All ADJ course-level SLO assessment will be accomplished through MOOCSICLE each semester • At least one PLO will be assessed each semester as well • All data will be centrally located, available, and updated so that instructors can correct anomalies immediately
