The Kaleidoscope Faculty Experience: Collaborative Adoption of OER

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In one year, faculty members from eight colleges partnered to create, deliver, measure and enhance OER course designs for over 9,000. The students found the OER to be of equal or higher quality than materials for other courses. They were more likely to succeed and more likely to persist.

Faculty from four different colleges and four different disciplines will share their experience in participating in the collaborative course redesign process. They will share the approach they used, the resources they discovered, and their process for improving the courses over time.

They will also share their personal experiences and recommendations in engaging in the open education community.
