This presenter will share the process that Central Lakes College has used to overcome many of the barriers associated with OER adoption, course redesign, and the authoring of new OER materials through faculty participation in OER Learning Circles and faculty access to a D2L Brightspace support course room. The presenter will outline the process she used to create and facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary faculty Learning Circles. She will provide suggestions for creating a D2L Brightspace support course room structured with weekly journal activities, weekly work plan update activities, optional weekly discussion activities, a repository of OER websites, websites and materials dedicated to ADA compliance, and support links and templates for writing and aligning assessments with learning objectives. She will share examples of the simple templates that she has created to guide faculty through the review, course redesign, and authoring pathways.
