SBCTC’s Infrastructure of Support for Faculty Use of OER
Open Washington is an open educational resources (OER) network dedicated to providing accessible pathways for faculty to learn, find, use and apply OER in any instructional setting. It provides step-by-step instruction in self-paced modules to help faculty integrate open educational resources into their teaching practice. The site also offers a categorized search guide for all types of OER and includes video testimonials from faculty sharing their experiences using OER.
SBCTC has developed a series of multimedia presentations on Open Education Policy strategies and implementations.
Specifically, the series discusses OER and public policy, sustaining a large-scale open project, the system perspective, impact of open policy, and government role and funding.
