Until summer 2016, there was no organized effort at PCC for the adoption and utilization of open education resources. Seeds of interest existed as individual faculty members developed some OER courses, but their work was not widely shared or recognized. However, those involved in the individual efforts understood how Pima's students could reap tremendous benefits from OER courses, and it was that thought that spurred our application for and eventual award of the Achieving the Dream grant. Now, as we attempt to create the courses for a fully online OER pathway to the AA Liberal Arts, we have one year of experience and insight into what it takes to grow OER courses in sustainable and collaborative ways. Join a team of PCC instructional designers as they share their experiences and best practices for developing a design team, defining the framework for the project, navigating successful partnerships with faculty, and addressing specific challenges finding and utilizing open resources.
