Community College OER Showcases: Scottsdale College’s OER Math Program and Tacoma College’s Liberate Project
This webinar starts at 1:00 pm (PDT), 4:00 pm (EDT) and will showcase two innovative OER projects at U.S. community colleges in Arizona and Washington State.
• Dr. Donna Gaudet, Mathematics Department Chair at Scottsdale Community College in Arizona will share the three-year odyssey of developing and adopting OER for all the math curriculum from arithmetic through pre-calculus. Results presented will include the cost savings and feedback from students on using the new materials.
• Quill West, OER Project Director, has lead the Liberate Project at Tacoma Community College in Washington since 2011 promoting OER awareness and adoption among faculty and students. The project saved students an estimated $271,000 in textbook costs in the first nine months and encourages student advocacy in OER selection and adoption.
