  4. 4. Costs •  $91 average textbook cost for US CC students •  94% lower textbook costs when using OER •  ~ $5 print on demand textbooks •  + $100k tui0on revenue by lowering drop rate Outcomes •  6% higher course throughput rates •  2.15 credits higher enrollment intensity •  Same or beVer performance on state standardized tests (K-12) Uses •  Differences in student outcomes between faculty adapters and adopters of OER Percep/ons •  Original survey work and literature reviews COUP Framework

  7. 7. Open Pedagogy: What? Open pedagogy is that set of teaching and learning prac0ces only possible or prac0cal in the context of the 5R permissions characteris0c of open educa0onal resources.
  8. 8. Open Pedagogy: Why? 1.  We learn by the things we do. 2.  The permissions granted by open licenses make it prac0cal and legal for us to do new things. 3.  The ability to do new things will likely lead to new kinds of learning.
  9. 9. Open Pedagogy: Why? Learning by making… Other learners benefit from… in private Nothing in public Ideas expressed in the ar0fact in the open Ideas expressed in the ar0fact AND the ar0fact itself
  10. 10. Open Pedagogy: Why? 1.  Our current model of producing OER is unsustainable (e.g., $500k - $1M / textbook). 2.  In the US alone, undergraduates spend about 40M hours per year on homework that is mostly thrown away. 3.  Can students sustainably create OER that supports learning by other students?
  11. 11. Online, public, charter school: ➢  Opened in 2009 as Open High School of Utah ➢  7-12 grades ➢  575 full-time students ➢  200 part-time students CC-BY MountainHeightsAcademy
  12. 12. Mission: ➢  Student-centered ➢  Innovative technology ➢  Service learning ➢  Personal responsibility CC-BY MountainHeightsAcademy
  13. 13. OER curriculum: ➢  Standards- aligned ➢  Teacher-created ➢  Student- supported ➢  98% OER ➢  Publicly released CC-BY MountainHeightsAcademy
