OER in Texas Statewide Playbook Course

This course is intended to support leads in developing and expanding Open Educational Resource (OER) work at institutions of higher education. This asynchronous course is designed to complement the OER in Texas Statewide Playbook, which outlines the steps needed to implement the change management inherent in an institutional shift to OER. Institutional leads are invited to explore the Playbook before beginning the Course, and can complete all of the lessons in order or select which lessons are most applicable to their work. At the end of each section of the lessons are planning prompts that will assist participants in identifying and articulating their OER initiatives goals, success indicators, coalitions, programs & partnerships, and outreach communication plans. Participants have two options to use to share their plans. Option 1 is to reply to the planning prompts in the group discussions. Participants will need be logged in and join the OER Playbook Group to be able reply to the group discussions. Option 2 is to download and/or remix the OER in Texas Statewide Planning Template which guides participants through all of the planning activities and provides space to respond to the prompts in the template. Participants can download the template to use, or they can remix it to customize it for their institution and they publish it when they are ready to share. To receive a certificate of completion, please email and include the link to your group discussions or published template remix, or attach your template remix.
