Conference Track

Open Access: Social Justice, OER, Open Research

Description

Portland State University (PSU) is working to reduce prohibitive textbook costs and improve access and equity. Through campus-wide collaborations with the Office of Academic Innovation (OAI), Student Government, and the Library we have undertaken an initiative that begins to define an institutional vision and strategies to promote the wider use of open educational resources (OER) across campus to meet our goal of $2 million in students savings and 200 hundred faculty adaptations/adoptions by 2020.

To that end, we’ll highlight our Open Education Week Symposium, Library’s OER Adopt / Adapt / Create grants, and OAI’s faculty support structure and relevant programming.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will walk away with a potential model for creating partnerships at their own institution.

Opportunities for attendees to envision how they may support OERs on their campus.

Best practices for student involvement in campus wide initiatives/promotion.
