Description

Open Education Resource (OER) work requires an engaged community to be successful. This community can be leveraged to share expertise and experiences that can make local OER efforts more effective and successful. iOPEN started as a series of informal virtual conversations that has evolved into a regional practitioner community that plans OER strategy, advocates for statewide change, shares funding opportunities, and co-presents their research. This poster will share how iOPEN became a community of practice and suggest strategies to create your own OER community of practice.
