Monroe Community College (MCC) is a regional open education leader expanding access to affordable education and fostering faculty innovation through the adoption of open educational resources and practices. In June 2016, MCC and four other SUNY community colleges (Clinton, Herkimer, Mohawk Valley, and Tompkins Cortland) were awarded a grant as part of Achieving the Dream’s OER Degree Initiative. In 2017. The SUNY system was able to provide additional funding for creating OER courses through a statewide grant. Librarians are coordinating the initiatives which include instructional design and project management support for the faculty teams who are building OER courses and a Biology OER degree.

Join us for this webinar to hear from Katie Ghidiu, MCC Interim Library Services Director, who oversees the OER projects and several of the MCC faculty who are participating in the SUNY OER funded efforts. She will share how MCC develops professional development opportunities and provides faculty incentives including release time and stipends to support this important work. She will be joined by Dr. Rollo Fisher, the director of Choral and Vocal Activities, at MCC who created a completely OER Voice Class last year, and is now using SUNY OER funds to create OER for four additional classes.

When: Wednesday, Feb 7th 11am PT/ 2pm ET

  12. 12. SUNY SIRIS Definition Open Educational Resources (OER): are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others. A SUNY OER course/section: provides students a cost effective alternative to traditional textbooks. The majority of materials in this section resides in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others.
  13. 13. “The majority of materials in this section…” 49% • Library resources/materials • Traditionally published, copyrighted material • Ancillary material(s) • Lab manuals 51% • Openly licensed • Creative Commons • GNU • In public domain • Do not have to be “forward facing”
  14. 14. Sustainability • Campuses like Herkimer, FMCC, Tompkins-Cortland, MCC have all voted and approved to add OER course fees in classes where the content has been replaced by OER. • These fees help to build sustainability on the campus for OER initiatives. OER money won’t last forever • State-ops do not have the same processes for new fees as community colleges.
