CCCOER: The OER Connection with Dual Enrollment

365 views

Published on

Dual Enrollment of high school students at community colleges has been growing rapidly in the last few years, as it helps students complete their first couple of year of college while attending high school which can save them both time and money. Many community colleges are now relying on dual-enrollment for a significant percentage of their enrollment numbers which is tied to their funding allocations. Textbook cycles and responsibility for payment, however, differ between high schools and community colleges. Some high schools pay for the college-level textbooks just as they would for any other high school book while others require students and their families to cover the expense. Textbook purchase cycles also differ. Many high schools only upgrade their textbooks every seven years but college departments update their books in half that time or less. Adopting OER in these classes can reduce costs for students and high schools as well as eliminate the friction associated with differing textbook cycle issues.

Join us to hear faculty and administrators from four different community colleges from a variety of settings – from small rural to large urban/suburban – describe why and how they selected OER for their dual enrollment classes, how OER is a good fit for that setting, and lessons learned from the process of adopting and using OER in dual credit classes. After we hear from our speakers we will have a panel discussion, so bring your questions.

When: Wednesday, April 3, 12pm PT/ 3pm ET
Featured Speakers:
Austin Community College (Texas)
Heather Syrett, Assistant Department Chair, General Studies, and Student Development
Christie Carr, Student Development and English Instructor
Bay de Noc Community College (Michigan)

  23. 23. Effective Learning Strategies/DE ADVICE • Set up a Blackboard site for your Dual Credit classroom with OER embedded, grade book and all assignments and activities (in and out of class). • Teaches students how to use the LMS with support. • Provide the OER link for outside of Blackboard access. • Demonstrate and preview your first chapter in class • Assign grade-based reading activities (journals, in-class discussions, etc.) • Add the Blackboard APP to your students’ smart phones (not all students may not have WIFI access.)
