Embarking on an Open Educational Resources (OER) initiative is a large task and entails work to ensure that it is faculty-driven, administrator supported, and has the resources necessary to enable success. One critical element needed is a sound professional development plan to promote awareness of and adoption of OER. Research with higher education faculty has consistently indicated that professional development for finding and successfully adopting open educational resources is both desired and necessary to undertake this transformation.
