Next week is Open Education Week 2022!
Here are a few links to get you started thinking about Open Educational Resources (OER):
- The Library’s 2020 OE Week blog post, which has an introduction to OER and why it is important
- The Durham Tech Library’s OER Research Guide, which has tons of information and resources related to open education
- openNCCC through the North Carolina Community College System, which has local information about sharing and discovering OER through collections and communities
- Community College Consortium for OER, which contains national resources for promoting and highlighting information and issues related to OER
Meanwhile, Durham Tech has earmarked $40,000 from HEERF to support adoption and implementation of OER in the classroom. I am chairing the OER Task Force, which is responsible for allocating those funds. We believe that OER’s proven effectiveness in helping students successfully complete their coursework is one of the reasons expanding OER at Durham Tech is a key component of the Strategic Plan.
