CCCOER: Regional Models for OER Implementation

287 views

Published on

Join us to hear from a statewide and a regional consortium who are establishing open education policy and collaboration models to accelerate the creation and adoption of OER across disciplines and crossing the segments from K-20.

Affordable Learning Pennsylvania, a grant-funded project lead by the Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc. (PALCI), is now entering its second year of supporting the creation of a robust OER community among higher education campuses throughout Pennsylvania and the region for the active development and use of open textbooks and related educational resources.

The Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) OER Policy and Implementation Summit in the fall of 2018 launched a regional effort to help Midwestern states to scale and expand their OER projects. Leadership teams from the 12 states are working with MHEC to develop and coordinate on action plans.

When: Wednesday, June 5, 12pm PT/ 3pm ET
Featured Speakers:
Bill Hemmig, Dean, Learning Resources and Online Learning, Bucks County Community College, Affordable Learning PA Steering Committee
Jenny Park, Director of Academic Leadership Initiatives, Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC)
Tanya Spilovoy, Director of Open Policy, Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET)
